Re: Fluid in ears
Apr 22, 2004
I have very bad sinuses and always getting sinus infections. A couple months ago, I went to the doctors because I was getting dizzy. My ear would clog, pressure under and above my eyes. Coughing from sinus drainage. The back of my eyes would hurt and felt better when I rub them. She said I had a sinus infection and the dizziness was caused from fluid in my ear. She said sinuses can caused fluids in the ear. She gave me nose spray and after a few days, I wasn't dizzy anymore and my sinuses cleared up. Two weeks ago, I came down with a cold. After a few days, I felt better except I was constantly blowing my nose and I had a cough that would wake me during the night coughing. I went to the doctor and I have alittle fluid in the same ear from my sinuses. The coughing is caused by my sinuses draining in my throat. She put me on Amoxi and nose spray and I feel alittle better and not coughing as much.
Re: Fluid in ears

I have had Eustachian Tube Dysfunction for about 2 years now. I have what i'd call a pretty severe case of it.. when it gets bad, my ears pound & feel pressured, my sinuses do the same & get stuffy & nose drippy, my throat swells up and gets sore. Throat infections are dangerous, the last time I had a throat infection it very quickly spead b/c of it and swelled up completley shut~couldn't eat or drink for a week, ran a 105 fever. Any kind of infection in my ear nose or throat quickly spreads to other parts and becomes somewhat of just an eustachian tube infection, along with bronchitis. Sinus infections or ear infections lead to some pretty intense ear pain and pressure..as well as the fluid. I don't know how long the fluid has been there, it was recently discovered. I take Flonase and Clarinex 2 prevent flare ups..and they do a pretty decent job if i'm not sick or in dead of allergy season(ragweed and grass..which are coming up =( ). I average about one respiratory infection a month, upper, lower, or both. Recently it's gotten to the point of dizziness when I get an infection..last time I fell over I was so dizzy. I may start Astelin soon if I don't get better...but yeah their all connected & can be triggered by allergies. Mine is..and thats why surgery wouldn't help, I don't think.
