2012 March 28 My hearing is almost back to normal. It’s taken quite a while for the internal sounds and my heartbeat to finally subside. I still have some problems with some audio frequencies and voices but that is also improving.
My sister had the flu last week and had also been complaining about a sore ear. Well she took off early at work when she realized that things in the office just weren’t quiet, but that she had lost some healing and went to see her doctor. After some tests, he determined that her tight eardrum had been perforated and that she had a middle and inner ear infection, for which he gave her a prescription for anti0biotics. What makes matters worse is that she had lost most of her hearing in her left ear in early adolescence, so now she is really at a loss. She said it’s not too bad as over the years she has had a lot of ear infections and has learned to lip read
In 2011 June 30 Post 806 Hearing issues I had an ear and throat infection and while I thought I got rid of it and had cured my ear problem, I’ve never been really able to clear the feeling that I’m still coming down with something. I’d be fine for a week or two and then feel I was getting a cold, and that would last a week or so without any real break. It’s also put my exercise routine on a hold.
Well during the past couple of months, I’d be sneezing like crazy one day, and then feel fine for two or three days. Then I’d get a runny nose for a day, and then be fine for another two or three, and then I’d have a tickle in my chest/throat and I’d be coughing for a day or two and then I’d be fine, and then I’d start the cycle all over again. It’s been really weird.
Well yesterday, on top of my sneezing and coughing I also got my ear infection back. It’s not as bad as the last time, but it is sore and I have diminished hearing in my left ear. I’ll be putting some olive oil into it for the next few days to see if I can get it unblocked, if not, I’ll have to see my Doc and get the wax syringed out of my ear.
