I have patulous eustachian tube syndrome. Suggest me remedy

sir, i am 28 and Male. I am facing ear related problem. I hear my own voice when i speak. I also hear my breathing and feel ear drum moving in synchronous with breathing. Problem gets alleviated when i eat something but to come back in few minutes. After exercise it becomes intolerable. I consulted an ENT specialist few years back. i was diagnosed with clogged Eustachian tube then. I was kept on medication for few days. But, no improvement was observed. i was told to live with this problem with few personal precautions. Days passed by, i started ignoring the problem. But,, now problem has become more sever and i want to get rid of this. Though, i was diagnosed with clogged Eustachian tube, i fear it is Patulous Eustachian tube syndrome as all my symptoms lead to this conclusion . please suggest me anything which help me get out of this problem.

Dear Mangi

your symptoms perfectly fits into patulous tube since long back you have not consulted doctor better consult now and get impedance audiometry and other ET function test done. If it is too much patulous can be corrected by surgery

thanks for your kind response. since last few days i am visiting an ENT specialist. But, he is quite confused with my problem. At one point he termed my problem psychological and advised me to live with it. But, i know it is not psychological. please advise me any good ENT specialist within Gujarat as i belong to this state.

Hi Mangi,

This can be a patulous eustachian tube. The medicines meant to relieve clogging of your ear can actually worsen this condition. You get a thorough check up done by a good ENT specialist in Gujarath to confirm this diagnosis. Also go through the following article for further information
