    Meniere's disease with hyperacusis

    I am a 50 year old male with no allergies. Since the death of my father in May.. i have been experiencing what I assume is Eustachian tube dysfunction. I would go to sleep and then I would experience extreme air pressure difference in my R ear. When It get really bad i would get tinnitus.

    I am able to pop my ears, but there is no relief. I am experience fullness of the ear. It feels like when you go to a concert or when you go on a airplane. I could hear myself talking or hear an echo. Outside noise is amplified and it would make me hear drumming sound in my ear.

    -no dizziness

    -no headaches

    -no pain

    It worse when I go to sleep and lay down. I would hear like drumming sound in my ear and I would know it would be coming.


    I have tried

    Zyrtec, neomycin ear drops, amoxicillin at first.

    Ginkgo biloba, Vit E, warm compression on the ear, sleep on the L ear.

    1st ENT Doctor did:

    -took ear wax out

    -place me on Flonase Nasal Spray 50 mcg

    -did hearing test

    THAT DID NOTHING

    2nd ENT doctor:

    -took ear wax

    -did hearing text

    -short dose of prednisone

    -suggest that I have Meniere's Disease

    i saw him a few times.

    Recently he recommend the following:

    -recommend MRI

    -recommend that i see a neurotology Neurotology is a branch of clinical medicine which studies and treats neurological disorders of the ear.

    -recommend blood work which I did

    -gave me second round of prednisone which I am taking now.

    -thinking of giving me diuretic



    I can't live like this...is there a cure? I get a few days of relief and it comes back again. I want to have a normal life again. Has anyone experience anything like this. I know that my dad death trigger this ..but when will it stop? Why me?

    I have that ear pressure(where popping gives no relief)& ive been diagnosed with vestibular migraines.Did the hearing test show any loss?? Btw you can have vestibular migraines with silent migraines and the ear pressure is migraine activity.
