1 1/12 weeks ago I had to take a 2 hour flight for a family emergency. I came down with laryngitis and mild congestion day before flight. I had mild ear pressure taking off and landing and my ears remained clear that night. The next morning I had pretty blocked ears so I went to an Urgent Care. They put me on steroid ear drops and Zpack. Made me worse and saw ENT the next day. He gave me a shot of prednisone with a 5mg 12 day taper. I think I now have Prednisone induced Patulous Eustachian tube! I’m just about tapered off and down to 5mg per day. Will I go back to normal after getting off Prednisone. I’m soooooo sad. When I got home I saw another ENT who was rude, dismissive and said I had fluid in my ears and prescribed Flonase mist which I didn’t use. I’m not clogged! Wouldn’t let me ask questions. Just glared at me.😥. I am seeing another specialist in Atlanta in a month. Will I get better once I get off Prednisone??? Please help. Everything I’ve read about this is awful.😥
