I still have that under water feel when I talk! it has been 9 months now and Dr. does not know the answer of why my hearing did not improved and that voice thing,he said I could have the tubes taken out,I don't know what to do.
I'm glad your starting to feel better. One day at a time is a good approach, it keeps the anxiety and frustration down a bit. I hope things continue to get better for you. I'll keep an eye on the forum in case you have any more problems .
No to the numb jaw. However, now I have thrush in my mouth from all the antibiotics...and I think I got a bit of s cold again. But, this is nothing compared to the pressure. Just taking one day at a time!
Thanks for letting me know how it went with the doc. My husband had that underwater feeling at times as well and a lot of pressure. I hope it clears up soon . Is your jaw still sore and numb?
Just wanted to follow-up. The ENT doc said things were healing nicely. I still had some drainage that was causing the underwater feeling. The doc said give it another week or so. I just need patience. Thank you for helping me during a dark period.
Thanks. I finished up the 7days of medicine....now I just can't hear very well. It's only been 7 days. Now my jaw in front of my ear is sore and almost numb to the touch. I'm hoping to see the ENT doc tomorrow. I just need someone to tell me I'm healing.
Thanks for the insight. I didn't even think about it being the bones not moving probably. My ears were really plugged with mucous..so i'm assuming it will take awhile for all that junk to move. It gives me hope that it should get better. I'm just wanting my eardrum to get better as well. Today is my last day of ciprodex...so here's to my ear drying out.
Hi, Sanderson, It's good to hear that the pain and pressure is gone, that's a good sign. My husband has a tube in his right ear now and has had them in both so he understands what you are going thru.
You may have moucus in the area of your stirrup bone that is allowing a little air to pass thru but keeping the bone from moving which may cause the tunnel or hollow effect. Are your tubes clear? For instance, if you hold your nose and close your mouth and GENTLY blow air, does it flow freely thru your air tubes. Don't blow too hard or you might blow your tube out of place. If you keep using the ciprodex and gently blow to loosen the debris hopefully it will flow out thru your EustacIan tube and alleviate the tunnel sound. My husband has experienced the same problems and they have improved over time but you have to keep working at it. We aren't doctors but my husband has been thru it so hopefully this will help.
