      I've got several frequencies but the most annoying one is the low buzzy one that seems to be linked to inflammation my ETs. I think I might be on to a solution. My new doctor prescribed Budesonide / Pulmicort, the kind that is usually used in a nebulizer, to be used in a neti pot. I had my first dose last night and this morning I woke up with no buzzing whatsoever. I will be doing this twice a day for 2 weeks. I've been using flonaze for months with no results, hopefully this will do the trick! This is sort of a new thing so if you ask your doctor to try it be prepared to defend your choice!

      Kevin.
      This is good information. I have the low buzzing sound too. Did you have or thought your t was related to tmj issues? I can't remember if not was you that had the low sounds and thought it was linked to tmj/muscles.
      You put the pulmicort in the Neti pot with water?

      I have TMJ which leads to inflammation of the ETs and backs up the sinuses. Clearing up the congestion is a challenge and this stuff seems to be doing the trick. Yes it's in the neti pot with the saline solution.

      Wow. Very good to know. I didn't know the jaw could affect the ET.
      So keeping the inflammation down on the et and not the jaw is the trick?
      Do your sinuses feel congested Kevin? Or do you just know that the tubes are inflamed and if so, how would I know? My ent looked through the nasal scope twice in two months ?

      Swelling in the jaw joints can have an effect on the ear and the ETs. It can even affect hearing. Treat all areas of swelling that you can. My sinuses are packed full of mucus according to my CAT scan, but because I have been using flonase I can breath normally through my nose. I do have constant post nasal drip though. As of knowing if your ETs are inflamed, if they click and pop when you swallow and talk, if they feel itchy or sore, or if you have trouble popping your ears you probably have inflammation. It's funny how both ENTs I saw dismissed this yet I most definitely have it. I was also put on a 2 week protocol by the oral surgeon that I saw. I was told to use heat packs on my jaw 6 times a day, take 600mgs of ibuprofen every 6 hours and go on a soft food/liquid diet. This has helped with the jaw but I think this new addition to the mix has helped to take the buzzy swarm of bees sensation away. I have completely habituated to the high frequency t but the "bees" can still sometimes sneak up on me. Hopefully this is no longer the case :)
