I suddenly had blocked eustachian tubes and saw the doctor 4 times. Was prescribed antihistimines, decongestants, nasal steroids, nothing worked and only made it worse. One of the doctor's nurses checked my blood pressured and the reading was high and she related it to use of antihistimines. It finally dawned on me that that could be my problem with the blocked eustachian tubes so I saw my internist and advised of my suspicious to the correlation of the blocked tubes to possibly high blood pressure and he said I was absolutely right and prescribed high blood pressure medication and I have NOT had the blocked eustachian tubes since. I was previously told it was allergies or some rare condition that there was no treatment for. I just want to get the word out that high blood pressure and blocked eustachian tubes ARE related.
I've had exactly the same, and the more i found myself getting anxsious the worse my ears felt. I have spent a long time trying everything from trying to find symptons and solutions. I feel alot better now that I know that once i've sorted out my high bp my ears will resume to normality.
Thanks for this post and confirming my findings. your a top person for posting this!!
Hi, So I went to my GP today because I have had clogged ears for 2 weeks after an allegric reaction to food. He said that my Blood pressure is high and what could have happened was not an allergic episode but a raise in my BP. Anyway, I haven't started my drugs on BP issues yet but I am happy to see some got reliefe on clogged ears by correcting the high BP. Thanks
