Now age 77, 3 years ago had flu/strep throat and then first time ever I had swollen eustachian tube. I could not take medicines recommended because I was also diagnosed with acute narrow angle glaucoma. I have had problems on and off since. I have ear fullness, tinnitus, pain, echo when I speak (it is mainly in the right ear but also a bit in the left. My family doctor moved and I have no general physician. A clinic referred me to an ENT but it’s a 2 year wait where I live (Northern Ontario) for non-urgent problems. I need help.

I have sore throat like pain, and my doctor says I have a blocked eustachian tube. I have seen no other comments about having sore throat like pain due to a blocked tube. Nasal spray and cleaning of the ear have offered little relief.

I have intermittent ear blockage, fogginess and pulsating in my left ear following a left sided molar extraction (due to a cracked tooth). I am also experiencing fullness in my left cheek and a sore tongue and a hypersensitivity in the left side of my mouth (to citrus fruits, tomatoes, raspberries and strawberries).
