Apologies as this may be long.... I originally visited my dr a year and a half ago complaining about constantly plugged ears. After a few more visits I was sent to an ENT. I told ENT about ear problems and recurring headaches in my forehead. ENT suggested I have a CT scan although he figured it wouldn't show anything. Turns out (to his surprise) I have "mild sinus disease". (I read on his computer screen paranasal mucosal sinus disease). When I visited him for the CT recall in April he told me to use Avamys and a Netipot. I have been using both and nothing seems to help. I saw the ENT again today and he seemed to think that my main concern was the fact that my ears were pugged, not that I have daily sinus headaches. He says I have ETD and there's nothing he can currently do about it since I don't have any negative pressure or fluid in my ears. When I asked about the headaches he said theres nothing I can do since its most likely related to the sinus disease and to continue using the netipot. I have a pretty deviated septum which he doesn't think is causing my problems since my nose isn't crooked so he assumes its been like that since birth. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on ways to potentially cure this or any causes for this??? My symptoms are basically plugged ears, pain in forehead and bridge of nose (almost daily, sometimes all day), and thick mucous. Sometimes I have a phlegmy throat and lose my voice but this doesn't happen often. Any info (suggestions, similar stories, cures) anyone can give me would be much appreciated.
