Eustachian Tube disorder

My husband has severe ear problems from years of flying for his company - 2000+ flites in 17 years! He has gone for an MRI, has seen a neurologist and is seeing an ENT specialist. He has found that on days when the barometric pressure is falling his condition worsens exponentially. He is dizzy, unable to function on a normal basis, and the pressure in his head "is driving him crazy",
Is there some "new technology" out there we have not heard of that may be useful, tubes are out of the question, as his doctor said it will worsen his dizziness and his hearing is crucial because of the work he specializes in.
Would like to hear from anyone else who suffers from this also....

Re: Eustachian Tube disorder

Hi, Problems with the Eustachian tube are very hard to diagnose and treat. Has he been given a definite Eustachian tube dysfunction diagnosis? Currently, Dr Poe in Boston and De. Weeks in California are offering balloon dilation surgery for opening the tubes. I'm not sure where you live but it could be worth it to try to get in to see one of them. I too suffer with this horrible condition, so I sympathize with your husband. Best of luck to you!
