I've been suffering from a provisionally diagnosed hydrops condition,which involves periodic feeling of fullness & blockage in the left ear,without an appreciable hearing loss.Both my audiometric analysis as well as MRI are normal,but the attacks persist for the last 6 months now,on an average every 5th day.I have been told that it is a variant of Meniere's syndrome,which i find difficult to believe,as i have no episodes of vertigo or nausea.The blocked feeling typically resolves spontaneously within 24 hrs.I would like to know if any one has a similar experience,the treatment suggested,or an expert ENT opinion on this matter.I'm a medical doctor myself.Corticosteroids resolve the pressure very marginally,& diuretics & SEC derivatives are of no help.
