My left ear felt plugged and full so I visited my doctor last week and he said it wasn't infected, but there was a lot of fluid in my middle ear. I left his office with a box of pseudoephedrine, but I don't like to take it because it's drying out my already dry eyes and increasing the volume on the tinnitus. I've been doing saline washes with a NeilMed squeeze bottle and I went digging through boxes of herbal supplements I've used in the past and tried to find things that were anti-inflammatory and immunostimulant. I don't know if that's the right tack to take. Has anyone had good results clearing up ear fluid without taking oral decongestants or nasal steroids? I think this ear fluid thing started about ten days after I began taking NT factor EnergyLipids and now all the crud that's in my nasal and sinus cavities is being dislodged...finally. I take guaifenesin round the clock to thin mucous secretions as it is. Herbal supplements, homeopathic remedies, any suggestions?
