I started about 2 weeks ago with mild seasonal allergies from the pollen. Then my ears started clogging and popping driving me insane. I take Claritin daily and use Saline Spray. Sometime it helps a little bit. I went to see an ENT yesterday and he gave me oral steroids, Veramyst and Z-pak. He said it looks like I have a sinus infection. I am congested in the nose but no discolored mucous.
I had this problem several years ago and tried everything, even allergy shots for a mild mold and grass allergy. Nothing helped until after a year of clogged ears I git a bloody nose with ear infection. The hospital gave me a strong antibiotic and within 2 days my ears clogged up and didn't bother me again till now.
I don't completly understand this condition. There is no fluid in my ears just air causing the horrible deaf plugged feeling. I assume my eustachion tube is swollen or keeps getting filled with junk from my nose. I just want it to get better.
I ordered something from Israel that just arrived today called the Eardoc. I tried it when I got home and it did make my ear pop for a little while, now it is clogged again. It is like a little hand held massager you put behind the ear and it helps open the tube.
I am thinking of trying accupunture if I do not get better soon. This is enough to drive u nuts.
I have the same problem now for over 2 months. Mine started after getting the flu. I also am on veramyst, tried prednisone, amoxicillin,penicillin,methylprednisone, take claritin daily, try popping my ears, i am just tired of this off balance feeling all day long! i also have sinusitis and just finished my 2nd course of z-pak, the ENT put me on it for 30 days. how have you been?
