Hello,
I am hoping someone has good new for me.
I have had mildly stuffy ears for 5 years but in the last 8 months it got so that I was always trying to clear my ears especially my right one.
So I thought this summer that it was possible a food allergy so I gave up
dairy and wheat which has made a difference but now the tinnitus has gotten out of control.
I have had a mild case of tinnitus for 17 years but this is much worse,
can anyone tell me if I clear this fluid from ears will the noise go away.
i was at my MD and he said that there is fliud behind my ear and I will be going to a specialist hopefully soon.
Please anyone can you give me some advice.
Thank You

  • Has your doctor had you on some type antihistamines? Also when I worked for a pediatric clinic one of the doctors told me to lay my head off one side of the bed and then put nose drops in the nostril that was on that side of bed. Stay that way a few minutes then go to other side of bed and do the same thing with the other nostril. This allows the nose drops to get into the tube that is blocked and helps dry the fluid up.A ENT is where you need to get checked out though. Good luck and health to you.
