swallowing and ear clicking

hi i can not hear in my right ear, have a feeling of water in my head, clicking in both ear EVERY time i swollow, and headaches that last for the day and my eyes feel lick they are too big for the sockets.I can "POP" my ear open an d hear perfectly for about a 30 sec period. I saw the end of THE DOCTORS and the person had the same symptoms and there was a surgery  to open the eustation tubes with a baloon. Any idea what my problem is??
Thank  you emthead

Sounds like an eustachian tube issue.  

Have you seen an ENT Specialist at all?

I would recommend consulting another ENT Specialist for a second opinion and be SURE to have a Tympanometry done.  

Have you ever been prescribed antihistamines or decongestants?

I would ask your physician to prescribe a decongestant and/or another antihistamine, i.e. Sudafed PE and/or Astelin Nasal Spray if the Nasonex isn't working.

Suggestion of the two things I have mentioned can; not saying they WILL.  I would try them in combination.
