Eustacian Tube Dysfunction and tinnitus

  1. 7 weeks ago

    Hi, I live in Czech Republic and i am 35 years old and i was diagnosed a subjective tinitus 2,5 months ago, my tinnitus just stronger because of panic reaction and caused me also some problems to get used of it, slowly i got used of it without taking some antidepresive as gp advised, however psychologist had different opinion on that.
    Doctors didn't do any tests on me , just audio test and based on my hearing is ok they said there is no need for more tests. For that reason i am now considering doing some test in my home country as my gp in home country also advised me.

    Together with tinitus after a week started problems with ear clogging by eating open jaw and pressure in ear (bubbles in ear), Doctors from beginning just gave me noise spray,which didn't resolve the problem. At beginning it was not bothering,however in last 2 weeks got really irritated . When i mentioned it to the doctor he said it is just tinnitus (strange as tinnitus is constant sound and this problem is not all the time), however when i informed myself about symptoms it looks more like Eustachian tube dysfunction. I was advised to remove stress, yoga, meditation,however i am not sure this will solve this problem, maybe tinnitus. Even though when i am very calm there is less clogging.

    I see no improvement of my condition just slowly getting worse, can you advice me on some remedies, test, treatment which could improve my condition?chiropractic?

    Hello skalca,

    The following is a very good link for subjective tinnitus: . You'll find a very good description of your condition with a number of diagnostic protocols to help identify the cause(s). In addition, the "alternative treatments" listed on their page are quite complete. For your additional symptoms I would recommend 50 to 100 mg of bioflavonoids 2 to 3 times daily with meals.

    Definitely look into biofeedback techniques as well as googling information on Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). You can learn a great deal about these very effective techniques online.

  3. Thanks a lot Doc Kelly,

    I am curios about biofeedback technique , I will try it out, also the article about tinnitus is usefull.

    Nevertheless i believe that to tinnitus i have additional more irritating problem with euthasian tube as cracking in ear appears when opening jaw eating or blowing in the noise and this are usually not symptoms of tinnitus. Of course i might be mistaken as no tests have been done, even for tinnitus much less tests than listed in the article you sent me.

    If you would have any additional advises in this directions some techniques of improvement would be beneficial. I got a nose spray from the doctor 2 months ago, however i read that in long term is not good to use it.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Oto,

    Your other symptoms/problems are the reason I recommended the bioflavonoids. Please let me know if they help.

    Hello Oto,

    When others can hear the "cracks" in your ear, it is certainly not subjective anymore. Please have your doctor listen as well. S/he should be able to determine what is causing this all-too-obvious cracking sound and diagnosis what is causing it.

    Hello Dr,Kelley,

    i have visited several doctors, which gave me different opinion, but most common diagnosis was Eustachian tube dysfunction (also problem with nose, rhinitis) and last specialist thinks that Eustacian tube is a bit open, which could lead to Patalus Eustacian tube. Also different opinion whether cracks can go away. For now i use only salty water to clear the nose as steroid nose spray was dis advised by some doctors. And i am working on removing of the stress as this could be cause of my problems.

    If you have any other advise would be helpful . I read on the forums that there is a new medicine developed in Japan.
