Ear Tubes?

Hello, I have been suffering from a blocked Eustachian tube for about 6 weeks now. I've been on all different medications including steriods. I was wondering if anyone had success with ear tubes? The pressure behind my ear feels so bad sometimes I feel like my eardrum will just burst. Does anyone recommend them. Will I feel relief right away with them? Also does one suggest a CT scan/MRI before getting the tubes - my dr. has not yet prescribed these scans and I feel maybe they would assist with my diagnosis.

Thank you!
