I have been experiencing Eustachian tube dysfunction starting about 4 years ago. Over the last 8 months it has been non-stop with ear closing off, crackling, popping, clicking when I swallow, pressure and tinnitus. I live on the wast coast of US in Seattle and have been to 2 GP, 5 ENT, 2 Allergists, Gastroentologist, Naturopathic doctor, 2 chiropractors, @ opthamologists (for allergic conjuctivitis they thought was related to the ETD but ENT's said no) and 2 massage therapists and nothing has worked. I have tried the usual steroid nasal spray, decongestants, antihistamines, prilosec (when they thought it was caused by GERD), several 30 day doses of antibiotics, prednisone, eliminating dairy products, etc. In reading about the new Acclarent product AERA which was approved in Sept 2016 it seems this offers a possible solution. I was looking for input :
1. Has anyone had this and care to share their results?
2. What is the best clinic or doctor on the west coast to see regarding ETD solution including the balloon dilation?
I am getting desperate and have run out of alternatives and no doctor can help me. I hope someone here can give me advice. Thank you!!
