Pressure in Left Ear When Swallowing
lindsayglo posted:
For the past week or so my left ear feels pressure and full especially when swallowing (almost like it pops or needs to pop when I swallow)
First went to the CVS Minute Clinic and they said that I had some clear fluid in my ear (otitis media with effusion).
I also had an appointment with a ENT doctor. He did an external exam, an audiologist did her exam and he also did an endoscopy.
He said everything looked normal and that I most likely had Eustachian tube disfunction. I haven't been sick or on a plane lately.
Any ideas what is causing this or how to fix it? Should I be concerned this is something more serious?
