What causes fluctuating hearing loss and tinnitus post left ethmoid sinus infection treatment?
Chronic sinusitis with pharyngitis and eustachian tube blockage
Thanks for putting up the query
Chronic sinusitis can lead to eustachian tube blockage which causes ear symptoms like heaviness in the ears or tinnitus or hearing difficulty.
The tubes or grommets which were put into the ears are put to treat eustachian tube blockage.
My advise is you should get an x-ray paranasal sinuses done and a pure tone audiometry done and send me the report.
The sequence of symptoms are due to sinus infection caused by some nasal pathology which must be treated. The management will depend on the reports.
Also tell me what medicines have you been taking so far so that I can suggest you better?
Follow up with the required information.
Thanks and regards
Eustachian tube blockage
Thanks for the information.
From the complaints it seems to be eustachian tube blockage only as the hearing difficulty as well as the tinnitus is fluctuating.
My advise is you should get an x-ray paranasal sinuses done and send me the picture
Also get a pure tone audiometry done.
Use a Fluticasone nasal spray twice daily for a week and tablet Levocetrizine plus Phenylepherine twice daily.
Take steam inhalation and chew a gum that will help to decongestant the eustachian tube and relieve symptoms.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Follow up with the investigation reports.
