Yesterday I was diagnosed with Eustachian Tube Dysfunction due to a sinus infection I had 6 months ago. I let it go for a long time because there was no pain but my hearing seemed to get worse. They checked my hearing and said it was excellent. That the issue is Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. I was prescribed Flonase and to buy Claritin D or Zyrtec D or something like that. Ideally, I like to not put anything not plant based in my body. Are you aware of any natural remedies for this issue? Thank you. Alexandra Strain

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that the persisting blocked sensation is related to eustachian tube dysfunction.

The eustachian tube is a passage way that links the middle ear to the nasopharynx (the uppermost part of the pharynx).

Had surgery for deviated septum.

"Worst EVER," doctor told me before we decided to get rhinoplasty.

"I ain't God. I can't guarantee you complete recovery, it is that bad. Will you accept 50% better?"

Before I could not go into the woods without feeling really woozy. Pressure behind my eye I mistook for nerve headaches behind right eye.

Only now, although the wooziness is gone, the right ear still gets congested and won't drain. Clicks and pops still. I'd say I am only 35% better.

2 Videos of me, post-op
https://youtu.be/dzfw-l_U4HQ
https://youtu.be/U0VRyR5NzDU

I think the deviated septum was the indirect result of hitting myself in the JAW because I am starting to look 30, and I curse. I messed up and hit myself again, and it is worse, hope TO GOD I did not fuck it up again.

IS THERE ANY PROCEDURE that can 100% cure me?

Because now, as I write this, anytime the girl over there bangs metal it makes me feel sudden wooziness. Congestion like hell in right ear. Although it still is not AS BAD as it was before the op. Enough to contribute to my desire to kill myself. (Dr. Naveem on this site and I HAD thought this was stroke related 2 years ago)

On the side, do I, the talking-me in this video, still look boyish and young, or ungodly MANLY, not boyish?
