Our expert says:
The diagnosis of Eustachian Tube disfunction in an adult is not as common as with children, but clearly does occur. The cause is often not apparent, but one usually tries to clear the problem with steroids an the nasal sprays. If the problem persists, one could overcome it by the placement of grommets. The grommet is a ventilation tube, that will take over the function of the eustachian tube for a limited period of time, hopefully giving the Eustachian tube chance to recover. This is recommended management. If however no sinister cause is found for the dysfuntional tube, and you are prepared to wait, the problem MAY correct itself. Discuss this with your doctor if you are still uncertain.
