I am suffering horribly patulous (open) Eustachian tube dysfunction. Due to the loss of all the fat around my Eustachian tubes a side effect from the my gastric bypass. I have done tubes twice. 3 different nose sprays. An estogin one, flonaise and I cant remember the other one. I turn my head upside down to bring the blood flow back into the tubes to stop the echo of my voice and breathing in my head. I lay down. I stop talking because it drives me crazy t hear myself. I breath through my mouth. I am learning sign language so when it starts I don't have to talk. Is there really nothing else that can't be done? my speech has change I have started to mumble

OMG!!! I recently had a sinus infection that has caused impairment of hearing in my right ear. I am already totally deaf in my left ear from spinal menengitis. I wnet to the emergency room after the 3rd week of sinus and ear symptoms. The doctor wanted to pat me on the back and send me home. That's it. I demanded an antibiotic because I couldn't smell or taste. He was mean and then I found out that my insurance has some $800 share of cost. I paid $100 right then and there just top get the prescription. Well, I still can't hear. I'm scared. Are there any Doctor's on this site who may have advice? Would ear cones help? Mineral oil? I can't afford another $800 for poor attention. Please HELP
