I just read some of your posts and I can relate to how you were feeling. I just need more information as I've been treated constantly for sinus infections and now an ENT has told me that my ears and sinuses look fine (except for "some" nasal inflammation). But if everything is fine and looks fine, then why do I feel this way? The ENT did suggest that I may have food allergies that could cause inflammation of the Eustachian Tube, but it's got to be more than that. I stopped consuming dairy products, as he thought this may be the culprit and even though it did relieve some of the sinus congestion, it didn't cure me. Of course, not eating dairy is going to ease on congestion, milk makes mucus...duh!
I would love to hear a more detailed description of your feelings, especially the "off-balance" feelings. Mine come and go. While a lot of the time, I feel "off-balance", maybe - once a week, I may have this feeling come over me, it's not vertigo..sort of feels like gravity is pulling me and I have to hold onto something so I don't "slip off the Earth". Does any of this sound like you? Please write back, as I've done a lot of research and everything points to ETD and if getting tubes would help me, I'm all for it. Is it painful? What kind of anestesia? Office vs. OR? Thanks you in advance and please feel free to email me your response!
