Suggest treatment for tinnitus
Thanks for your help.
You are most probably having eustachian tube blockage .
Hi XXXXXXX ,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query , reviewed your medications and understand your concern.
After reading your clinical history it appears that you are most probably having
eustachian tube blockage due to allergy , deviated septum & turbinate hypertrophy .
If I were your treating Doctor for this case , I would advice you
go through the surgery for deviated septum & turbinate hypertrophy . There will be certain improvement after surgery , but no doctor can guarantee degree of improvement will be . Since your Audiometry did not show any hearing loss.
Surgery will decrease your requirement for nasal spray & prevent any other future complications . Also certain improvement in eustachian tube blockage , decrease allergy & improve ventilation in nose , sinuses & middle ear .
Till then i would advice you
Use Saline nasal rinse or spray thrice daily &
Duonase nasal spray ( Cipla ).
You will get relief .
Hope it is helpful to you . If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Thank you for your answer. I just have a few more questions:
1) Is Duonase better than Nasonex, and how so?
2) Are there any ear drops or anything else I can use for quick relief during a spike when I get the feeling of fullness in my ear?
3) what are the common side effects and recovery time of the surgery?
Thanks again .
Yes , Duonase is better than Nasonex .
Thanks for the follow up query.
Yes , Duonase is better than Nasonex , it is a combination Steroid nasal spray with antihistamine than only Steroid in Nasonex .
Ear drop will not help you , since problem is inside ear drum . Ear drop will not reach there . You can use Nose drop like otrivin 2 drop thrice daily in right nostril for quick relief from fullness . Otrivin should be used in emergency only , it has own side effect if use more than 7 days .
Nose packing done after surgery for 1 day . Swelling in nose after surgery will subsides within 7 days . Need to do daily nasal saline rinse twice daily for 10-15 days . You can join your work 2 days after surgery . In experience hand there is negligible side effects .
