Thank you doctor,
I had intermittent dizziness for about six months. My ENT said I had negative pressure in both ears (but mostly in my right ear). So, she suggested I get tubes placed in both ears. After tubes were placed in both ears, I had a horrible migraine that lasted five days and a constant flow of dizziness. (I never had migraines prior to the tubes). I was prescribed some type of Prednisone from my primary doctor for inflammation because my right eye was a bit droopy and I had a right ear, face, and neck pain. The symptoms went away. The Prednisone was taken five the first day, four the following, then three, etc. Since taking Prednisone, I have had intermittent pain on the right side of my face, slight migraines, a heavy eye and pulsating tinnitus that I notice mostly at night or when it is quiet. I also have bouts of insomnia, nausea, and diarrhea. I saw a neurologist and he said to do physical therapy to rule out crystals in my ears. My MRI shows a Chiari malformation type 1 but the neurologist was not convinced. This was to be concerned about because it was only about 2 mm (which I never saw him measure). In my research, it is not about the size of the herniation but more about the symptoms. I have been missing a ton of work and am trying to get my life back on track here. So I am seeking answers from my tube surgery and MRI results.
