For about 10 years i'll come down with flu-like symptoms fever fatigue dizziness that will only last about 1 to 2 days. It always feels like my Eustachian tubes. I have been a professional scuba diver and believes it all stems from my ears but im not sure. Most doctors just tell me It's allergies but I believe it to be something differently. This wears on me mentally and would like an answer.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Scuba diving is associated with middle and inner ear dysfunctions and eustachian tube defects. Treatment is mostly supportive and symptomatic. Consult an otolaryngologist and let them help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
