Had MVD for glossopharyngeal neuralgia 6/13/16. For the past 3 wks I've had what feels like fluid in my ear- that is now completely clogged, pulsating throbbing over my incision site( not really painful- just throbs with pulse), horrible taste in my mouth especially with sweets or carbs, dizzy especially upon rising. I saw my neurosurgeon and he ordered an MRI with and without contact of the brain and auditory canal. I am wondering if this may be a csf leak. I really don't have the headaches. Thanks for any help. I have an appt Nov 10 for results but hope to goodness I hear before then. Hearing is becoming an issue- breathing and my voice are echoing in my ear.
