Brief Answer: Eustachian tube dysfuction Detailed Answer: Hi Mam, I have gone through your query, medical history and current medications. It suggests that you may be suffered from the eustachian tube dysfunction. For your kind information about the eustachian tube dysfunction---> 1. It means that the Eustachian tube is blocked or does not open properly. Air cannot then get into the middle ear. Therefore, the air pressure on the outer side of the eardrum becomes greater than the air pressure in the middle ear. This pushes the eardrum inward. 2. It is usually a temporary problem that lasts a week or so and most commonly occurs during and after a cold. 3. Treatment for this mainly local and systemic nasal decongestant, antihistamines, or a steroid nasal spray. 4. Ear pain is due to this negative pressure. 5. Teeth pain may be referred because ear and teeth both have common nerve supply. Better to consult the ENT specialist for better diagnosis and management. If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query.
