Hi Hester

If the pressure you are referring to is the pressure built up in the cochlea and vestibular area leading to vertigo, which is often a symptom of Meniere's Disease, this can be treated with the necessary medication. An ENT specialist will prescribe if needed.

Pressure in the middle ear, which often accompanies a middle ear infection and can also result in Vertigo is usually treated with antibiotics, decongestants or the insertion of a myringotomy tube into the ear drum, depending on the symptoms and the stage of the infection.

For both conditions it is advised you see an ENT Specialist. You can contact me on debbiep@widex.co.za or through the Widex office at 0866965740 if you are needing a referral.

Kind regards
