Ear will not pop
Nov 4, 2013
Since June 14, 2013 I have had a clogged right ear in various stages of "clog". I have been on 2 rounds of antibiotics, OTC sinus meds, nasal sprays and 2 rounds of steroids and had a myringotomy and I still have the clogged feeling. Oh and the sound of my heart in that ear is awful and keeps me up at night. I recently started with a chiropractor. It's too soon to tell if it is working, but I am at my wit's end. I do have negative pressure in that ear, based on a hearing test. I have to find another ENT that can help me. But what can that be?
I'm sorry to hear what you are going through.
My husband has some of your symptoms for over a year now.
Did you do a ct scan?
I think you should do all the medical examinations such as tympanometry, ct scan on ears and head, blood test etc.
You said that you do have negative pressure in that ear, based on a hearing test. The ent should know what is it and what to do with this
Hope you feel better soon. keep update..
May 2014 update. My ear is still clogged. I had a CT scan of my sinuses, and temporal bones-every thing normal. Had another hearing test, very little hearing loss, could be age related (geez I hate that reason). In Oct I had a myringotomy-just a slit,it didn't help. In March 2014 I had a tube put in, it didn't help. I went to a neurotologist, a specialist in ears. He said the tube was in my ear canal and removed it along with some wax. Still no improvement. next step is MRI. And he basically said this is a medical mystery, not just me, and if there is nothing on the MRI, I have to live with the clog/negative pressure.
So I have been to 3 ENTS, and my PCP and chiropractor. I don't know what to do, what other type of doctor to go to and honestly at 57 years young, I don't want to live with this for the rest of my life.
