Ear problems
Something you can do yourself.
Ujjayi pranayam 5 to 21 times daily.
Anulom vilom 20 minutes, twice a day.
Bhramri - 7 to 21 times daily.

Ujjayi pranayam
Procedure: While breathing in, tighten throat(contract glotis) and there will be sound from back of throat, then drop chin(rest chin on chest), hold breath as long as possible.Then  chin up, close right nostril and slowly breath out through left nostril.
Duration: 5 – 21 times

How to do Ujjayi
When you clear your throat, you tighten your throat and breath out, twice, with a pause in between. . Now if you reverse this, that is, tighten the throat and breath in continuously for abour 8 to 12 seconds, then hold your breath for 4 seconds with the chin down, then  chin up, close right nostril and slowly breath out through left nostril, you have just done Ujjayi pranayam.You will feel like coughing initially.

It is good to see doctors supporting the pranayam techniques as an alternative.

Dear Friend,
Did you tried the treatment plan, suggested by Hava?
It's an antient indian way of treating many stress / depression related issues.
No harm in trying it.
Well, for a pure medical treatment, you need to have an MRI scan done to know the details, if there is any atrophy or white patches being noticed.
Depending on the report, organic or supre-tentorial treatment can be planned.
Please discuss about the present condition as i can provide the treatment plan.
Regards.
