After 5 weeks of having fluid in my ear, I have finally gotten an appointment through my doctor with an ENT. I have to wait until December 3rd for my appointment, however. What is weird is that I had about 2 or 3 days where I didn’t feel any fluid at all in my ear and then all of a sudden – wham! I could feel my ear filling up again. I noticed yesterday that I was getting that pain back in my neck and in my head that is really sharp and my ear was full. I am also running a fever off and on again. I’m not going to get anymore antibiotics before I see the ENT. I hope it doesn’t get any worse before then. The probiotics I bought must not be doing much good since all of the symptoms are back strong again: sinus pressure, sinus headache, neck pain, mouth and teeth pain, ear pain, and tenderness around my nose and sinus area.
I started feeling pretty good here the past few days and I thought that maybe, after two rounds of antibiotics in 3 weeks, I was better. But that was wishful thinking, I guess.
Can anyone give me some suggestions on what to try? This is everything I have tried for the sinus infection and ear fluid/pain:
- Antibiotics (Omnicef, 300 mg., Levaquin, 500 mg.)
- Sinus rinse
- I’ve used Vicks on my forehead and sinus area to see if that loosens up my sinuses any.
- Nasal sprays
