I have read somewhere that if your ET was inflamed that can cause tinnitus also. I know you mentioned a few post back that as soon as my eardrum heal and the inflammation goes away there's a good chance the tinnitus will go away. How long can an inflamed ET last without medication?
My ear having been making a cracklings noise lately when I swallow..inflamed ET? "Sticky" fluid inside middle ear?
Need some advice as to what medications that will help with inflammation so I can ask my ENT for it during the next appointment.View Thread
just wanted to share my ENT/ second opinion from yesterday.
Good news is that my second opinion from the ENT said I don't need the surgery. SO HAPPY! follow-up with him again in two weeks and a hearing test.
Tinnitus is still here..but, I don't hear the heartbeat part of the tinnitus anymore...the ringing is still here though...but not as loud as before...ENT thinks there is fluid in the ear.Still using the "earpopper" in hopes of getting the fluid out.View Thread
I was a little skeptical about it at first..but it has a 30 day money back guarantee. I had nothing to lose. I can only order the "home version" without a prescription.
It makes kinda of a loud/vibration inside the ear though..but i can def. "feel" the E-tube opening.
As far as the reduced ringing that has to be a good sign of it resolving right Dr? Maybe still inflammation somewhere in the ear? It literally reduced it by 50%! this have been a life saver for me! I hope the people that invented the device make tons of money!View Thread
Just a REALLY good update! I was reading through "Snooth's" comments a few days ago about the "Earpopper" I was doing some research about it and decided to try it...Well,it came in yesterday evening and I tried it and WOW!The ringing had just reduced by at least HALF! Is it because of the fluids that are still trapped inside the ear canal? I can't not believe this!! I am sooo glad she posted about the device!
BTW, I have that second opinion from the ENT on the 17th. I will keep you posted.View Thread
