confused about the eustation tubes and ears

Hi Peeps,

Basically im a tad confused about the eustation tubes and middle ear. I have had t-tubes inserted into both ears, however, my ears still keep popping every 4/5 seconds every day and feels like my ears need 2 be popped all the time. Does this mean i have patulous eustation tube as the tubes arent working fully

Any suggestions
Thanks
Lucus

Hey I just had a bad cold and then my ear was stuffed, it felt as if it were stuffed with gauze and it felt like mabey I was becoming deaf. The eustation tubes are in your mouth, and so fluids can drain into your ears, causing them to *block.* A very helpfull solution is to get a bowl of steaming water and eighther take deep breathes through your mouth or nose... eventually it will pop out. I do not know of any other solutions because your middle ear is behind your ear drum.
I am only 13 so my advice may not help, but give it a try.
