I can echo all the frustration that I see in your posts. I have been "patient" with this malady since Easter.

My pcp gave up and sent me to an ent who prescribed all of the same teatments that you are now going through and today (2 months later) I am back to square one.

A limited ct scan of my sinuses is scheduled next week and I am seriosly looking at alternative medicine.

All the antibiotics, decongestants, etc. have had no effect. Actually they made the "feeling" worse, and I am now greatful to only have the ringing and pressure in the right ear all the time and the left ear only partially.

At night both ears clear while I am prone yet they both refill as I stand and begin moving around. I had this same problem for several months in 1998 and it cleared up on its own by this time that year. I can only hope the same will happen this year.

I can't prescibe your course of action, but for me, it's no more pills from an m.d.

I don't think they know how to treat this and/or the treatment that they understand is having no effect. Either way, I've spent time and money to arrive at the same place that I started.

I can do that on my own.

Good luck. Forest.
