negative eustachion tube pressure w/tinnitus
I've had tinnitus (left ear) over 10 yrs.  Because of clicking in my left ear when swallowing, I have recent audiological hearing test. Negative eustachion tube pressure of left ear was noted. Is there a safe medical procedure to eliminate this negative pressure? Can this procedure possibly minimize/clear up my tinnitus? Ken from SINY

Hi!
Negative pressure can develop due to blocked Eustachian tube. If  Eustachian tube is blocked, then doing a valsalva maneuver (Done by taking a deep breath and blowing while pinching your nostrils and closing your mouth) will help. This will help clear the secretions in the tube that connects the back of your throat with your ear. Also you can blow into a big balloon. Chewing a gum in between these simple exercises also helps. Please also consult an ENT specialist regarding this. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
