What causes fluid in middle ear? - Online Doctor Chats
I have had a feeling of fluid in my middle ear and had a tube put in last year. It is no help for drainage. I have pressure and is very painful about three time per week. Have tried nasal steroid spray, antibiotics, antihistamines and steroid shot. Hot water bottle heat helps. It feels numb at time and my hearing is dull. One doctor wanted to do surgery to open up passage from broken nose, but I have not had a broken nose?!
Thank you. Do you need more information?
I have gone through your question and I suspect you might be suffering from a closed eustachian tube
can you tell me how long this has been going on?
As you have already undergone a surgery to put a gromet(Tube) to drain out the fluid, there are no chances of fluid being there still
the problem I see is, there is no actual diagnosis made
And if you were me what direction should I head for relief?
first of all we need to identify the cause for all this
that means looking inside your ear directly with an otoscope
and eustachian tube
removing that underlying cause will cure you of the problem
Should I go get the MRI or CT?
MRI will be better
Ask your ENT doctor to request the relevant scan
Once that is done, we can go forward in treating the problem
is there anything else I can help you with?
No sir, I really appreciate your help. Good job! Thank you!
