    Eustachian tube
    prarce2 posted:
    Almost 8 months ago I posted on here about an ear infection that got cured, but caused eustachian tube dysfunction. The reason I am posting is because it has been 9 months and this just gets more troublesome. So the reason for writing this is there anything I can do to get better my nose,throat, ears feel like crap and I hate feeling sick all the time. I thought it was going away I was val salva'ing 2-3 times a day and it was getting better and then something happened and now it feels as that and my lymph nodes are hurting. I know the doctor said he could pop my ear drum and insert a tube to help equalize the pressure, but I don't know if that is the only way to make this go away. It seems to be though.
