Grommets for ETD

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, i've been suffering with EDT for over a year now. It's making me so anxious and depressed. I feel like its ruining my life, putting strain on my family life and some days i just wish i would die as i cant take anymore.

I have tried many nasal sprays, antihistimines and Flixonase nasules. Nothing has really helped.

i cant pop my right ear at all, and feel the need to pop my left ear through out the day as it feels like i have air bubbles and it makes it sound strange when i talk.

main symptoms are ear pressure, feeling of fullness, itching, earache, tinnitus in both ears (different pitches) stuffy nose and post nasal drip.

i have seen a private ENT consultant several times - hearing test normal, ears look normal and pressure test normal.

Has anyone here tried grommets to help even out the pressure? i would like to hear your experiences please.
