Have they never once considered allergies?????
That surprises me!
I have pretty severe Eustachian Tube Dysfunction brought about by allergies. Meaning my entire ET track will be swollen..first my sinuses, get sinus headaches, runny nose, sneezing, then my ears, pressure & pain, can't pop it out, muffled hearing, then when its really bad..my throat gets sore and swollen, sometimes 2 the point where I can't eat. In the past few years i've had dangerous throat infections..ones that have left me dehydrated b/c I couldn't eat or drink my throat was swollen 2 begin with, then it swelled an outrageous amount with the infection. I have had 2 switch medications several times b/c my throat is constantly swollen & I can't take most pills unless they are advil size or smaller. I was on Allegra in the beginning 4 all this, but it got 2 big 2 be swallowed..now I am on Clarinex. In the beginning I had sinus infections all the time, then I started feeling like I had ear infections..it was actually ETD from the imbalance of pressure between my sinuses and ears. I've been on Flonase, Clarinex, Singulair daily which helps a ton 2 keep me better, then Sudafed 4 flare ups. If I'm having a severe allergy flare up(generally i'll have hives/rashes & asthma problems also) then prednisone usually helps. I'm constantly congested & my ears hurt almost everyday. I do get dizzy when I get sinus infections or a cold you know why dizziness happens..when the sinuses under your eyes are full, they cause dizziness. So i've heard. I have a few ideas of what I know i'm allergic 2 by trial & error & observation(dust, pollen, mold, trees/grass, various skin allergies) but I am not able 2 be allergy tested(2 bad of skin allergies) which makes shots out of the question also. I've noticed so far the WORST feeling is when you feel the mucus dripping down your ET..from your ear past your nose 2 your throat..its just like you wanna reach in somehow and scratch it! ahhhh sorry 2 be gross but i'm sure you have the same thing. When i'm not doing well also I notice that I wake up with uneven pressure on my ears depending on what side I sleep on. Flonase & Clarinex are VITAL 2 maintain at least me being able 2 get up in the morning and feel somewhat ok at least. So they do help. But during some bad allergy attacks or sickness nothing helps. I thinky ou both should consult an allergist and have allergy testing done..or have an IgE count 2 see if allergies is the culprit. That could be why they aren't seein anything. Also it could very well stil lbe sinusitis..it coudl be that it's deep in the sinuses, and very backed up..IV antibiotics & sinuneb coudl help. Just some thoughts. Hope I helped you guys..![/QUOTE]

Kind of..it's more of like a really tight, congested feeling when talking, my ears always pop & crackle. I don't think my ET is open enough 2 breath air into it lol..
having a bad nite 2nite. Can't breathe through one side of my nose at all, only barely through the other side. Got so frustrated earlier I almost started crying..though I think I have a cold(already second one this year!). There has 2 be something i'm missing here. It just doesn't add up..
I'm hoping I can get my immune system checked soon b/c i'm starting 2 think i'm immunocompromised & that I have other immune imbalances as well. Also I want 2 see if I qualify 4 ear tubes or sinus surgery..I can't take almost all the medication out there for this & still be suffering!
Sorry i'm not nearly as optimistic as I was earlier now. Just kind of frustrated.
I have been contemplating trying Atrovent for the nose(supposedly dries up everything) or Nasalcrom(stops the allergic process)..Atrovent is a prescription though so I don't know. I don't know if I should see an ENT(haven't yet) or an allergist(but I can't be tested anyway)..I've got asthma & skin allergies so this all just sucks..
But I feel weird going 2 the doctor for sinus/ear problems. It really affects my life everyday, I just feel like he's not gonna take me seroiusly. I wasn't like this until about a month ago when I saw a pulmonologist 4 my asthma who completely disregarded me & my problems, he told me nothing was wrong! So why are my lungs so sick all the time? I just feel bad now, like my problems aren't important. I don't know.
Sorry had 2 get some stuff out.
I think I'm in the beginning stages of what you have. It started in the left ear and was accompanied by tinnitus. It is now worst in my right ear and, when I move my jaw, I can hear a swishing sound. My hearing is fine. My ears just have a clogged feeling all of the time and the left ear tinnitus and clogged feeling in both ears never goes away. I believe this is also leading to severe headaches that a neurologist diagnosed as migraines. The ENT says it is Eustachian Tube Disorder caused by a swollen septum (nose) due to significant allergies. This all happened about the same time we got 2 new puppies. However allergy shots have not helped. Moving my jaw causes a crackling sound in both ears. Feels like I'm on an airplane all of the time. The right ear has a cold, wet feeling behind the eardrum.

Is this the beginning of what you have?
