Chronic Dry Eyes, Ear Pain. Taking Anti Inflammatory Medications, Eustachian Tube Condition. Related Symptoms?

I have been suffering with chronic dry eyes . I am on anti inflamitory drops, I have also been having problems with humming in my ears. Yesterday I had a very bad ear ache, my ENT said it was probably my eustachian tubes and gave me oral anti inflammitory meds. Today my ear feels much better, and my eyes also feel much better. I want to know if there is a connection.

Hi scooby,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
There is no connection between eye and ear.
Your eye problem also seems to be related to some inflammation may be allergic origin, the anti-inflammatory for the ear decreased the inflammation due to generalized effect of oral drugs and improved the eye symptoms. You should get checked for common allergic problems of eye like allergic conjunctivitis, lack of tears etc.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!

Dear Scooby
Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma. ENT surgeon
It appears that you have a allergic reaction which appears to be affecting your eustachain tube and eyes. Another possibility could be a infection of nose or sinuses causing eustachian tube block and infection in eyes. You would require a ENT and Ophthalmic consultation to reach the diagnosis. Feel fre to contact me if you need more information
with regards
Ravinder Sharma
