Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
What is your age and how long have you had this trouble?
Do you have a history of allergies?
How about ear infections?
I have had this 2 months started right after having a flu bug
What you describe is serous otitis (medical term for this problem). This can sometimes go on to lead to a middle ear infection. Sometimes this is caused by eustacian tube dysfunction. The eustacian tube is the tube that connects the middle ear space (behind the ear drum) to the back of the throat....
The respiratory illness probably led inot some swelling of the eustacian tube and this led to your current problem..
You may have some benefit from trying a decongestant spray like Afrin or Dristan...
They probably had you try a steroid nasal spray...
An oral decongestant such as Sudafed sometimes may help (you may need to be careful if you have high blood pressure though..)
I have seen a doctor and said their is fluid behind my ear drums and it should get better it started getting bettr then nothing
Sometimes this can go on to cause a middle ear infection and needs an antibiotic to clear....
Have you tried a decongestant?
ok this is some ideas to try thankyou
