It all started 4 months ago. My ears were clogged and my Dr. thought I just had fluid in my ears, since I was pregnant and retained a lot of water. The baby was born 1 month ago and my ears has not cleared. Just last week it switched to my other ear and is much worse. I now have a constant humming/wooshing sound in my ear. My Dr. put on antibiotics and it did not work. I then went to an ENT who prescribed Prednisone, wich I have taken for 2 days. I don't know how long it takes to work but I have not noticed a single change. I also have high blood pressure and cannot take any kind of decongestant. I am also experiencing some hearing loss, it seems 1 ear is very clogged and the other seems to amplify sounds, especially when there are back round noises. I am also unstable when standing/walking. Please let me know if there is anyone who has had any of these symptoms and if there is anything you can do to help it out.
I can notice the hearing change a lot while trying to listen to the radio, I can't can't hear absolutely any bass and when there is a lot of noise and someong is trying to talk to me.
