I had a conversation yesterday with my GP which has essentially concluded that there's fluid in my ear. I've got sinusitus that seems to not want to respond to any of the steroid sprays that I've tried, although my GP has started me on another one today. The Glue Ear is really affecting me, I can tell (now I'm aware of it) that my hearing isn't what it should be and that this compounds with all my other conditions to really screw me over.
I've got a lot of problems, and one of the ways I deal with that is to learn as much as I can about them. But there's so little information out there for adults with glue ear. The cause is fairly obvious in the sinusitus (my sinuses aren't draining, what hope does my ear have), and I'm irritated because the sinusitus should've been treated years ago and never was.
I guess I just want to know other people's experience as adults with glue ear and especially if anyone else seems to have had it caused by sinusitus. I start with the nasal balloon tomorrow once my pharamcy's ordered one, and if that doesn't help in a few weeks I've been promised an ENT referral but I've heard that before.
