Hi

ETD?

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

This is eustachian tube dysfunction. It is a common problem. I see it nearly every week in my practice.

I doubt this is ETD

It sounds more like Meniere's disesase

I recommend you have a CT of the sinuses and see an ENT doctor. this is classic menieres
