Headache due to Eustachian Tube Obstruction (GJO) - Juniper Publishers

Authored by Hee-Young Kim in GJO - Juniper Publishers

Headache caused by Eustachian tube obstruction (ETO) is a distinct clinical entity. Although Eustachian tube obstruction as one of the principal causes of ‘hearing loss’, and/or ‘ear fullness’, and/or ‘tinnitus’, and/or ‘headache (including otalgia)’, and/or ‘vertigo’, has already been recognized by many wellrespected senior doctors for a long time, it has still received only scant attention both in the literature and in practice [1,2]. Some researchers mention that Blocked Eustachian tubes can cause several symptoms, including ears that hurt and feel full, ringing or popping noises, hearing problems, feeling a little dizzy [3]. There’s one point which claims our attention. Instead of headache, otalgia is usually mentioned more frequently in the literature related to ETO. However, we should keep in mind that ‘otalgia’ can be included in wider sense of the term ‘headache’.
