Does she shower before she goes to bed? Even if not, It could be water getting in her ears...maybe suggest she use ear plugs when taking a shower.
An MRI should have been able to diagnose a CSF leak, so I don't know if I'd be too concerned about that.
Does the fluid have a smell at all? How much fluid?
Thank you for your response, She has had MRIS and it is not from taking showers since she does not wash her hair every night. Not too much fluid, no smell. She has been to a few ENT specialists and they all say there is nothing wrong. Thank you.
Generally with a CSF leak there would definitely be other symptoms...especially headaches, etc.
There usually isn't any other fluid in your ears besides ear wax, which can be a variety of colors/textures. If her ENT isn't concerned, and she doesn't have any other symptoms...maybe she could try putting either cotton balls or ear plugs in her ears at night so she doesn't feel the fluid come out?
Best of luck!
I have the same issue. It's very frustrating. Every night if I wake up I have fluid in my ears and in the morning. It's not a lot but sometimes it will make a q-tip quite damp.
I too awaken at night with clear fluid in my ears...which is sometimes painful. I have severe headaches/migraines, dizziness , blurry vision, and many more symptoms. My eye exam and an MRI were both unremarkable. So I have no idea....but I have read that CSF leaks can be very difficult to find.
Good luck to you.
I have the same problem but my doctor says its not a problem....well it is for me..its very uncomfortable!!
