  • When will fluid in ear from ear infection go away? (1 answer)
    Twelve days ago I my left ear suddenly started hurting, and stared to sound like my ear was under water. Pain, and pressure in both ears continued to get worse for 8 days before I saw a doctor who diagnosed infection in both ears and prescribed me amoxicillin, 500mg 3x a day.

    I have taken the antibiotic on time every time for 4 full days and pain and pressure have only decreased a small amount and my hearing has not returned to normal, and seems to be affecting both ears although only the left sounds under water.

    When might the fluid finally drain and my hearing return to normal? Or, when should I contact my doctor about symptoms barely improving? I have never had such a slow reaction to antibiotics, but I have also never had an ear infection even as a child.

    I did try a couple home remedies to drain or dry the fluid days ago. Sweet oil just temporarily added pressure and an alcohol/vinegar mix just caused more discomfort. I am starting to become concerned about permanent damage to my hearing since the problem started almost 2 weeks ago.

  • I have recurring episodes of ear infections, ulcers in my nose and 'humming' in my eyes.
    All three conditions occur together and repeat every few weeks. I have had the symptoms treated individually with ointment for my nasal cavity and ear drops. Because the symptoms recur I" am concerned that maybe it's viral. This has been going on for a couple of years and I'm sick of it. My eyes 'hum' which draws blank stares from medical professionals I have spoken to. When they 'hum' I tightly blink my eyes - involuntarily. I have recently started using a Positive pressure sleep apnoea machine and the airflow triggers the humming. The staff at the sleep centre where I bought the sleep apnoea machine said that the triggering of the eyes humming is caused by fluid in my sinuses. I need to know what these three symptoms occuring together means, and how to treat the cause rather than the individual symptoms. My ENT

    said that if I stop 'picking' the ulcer then it would clear up and ignored the symptoms as a whole! I need help

  • Sepsis hallucinations misdiagnosed
    I was admitted to the hospital at 10 p.m., with a total bowel blockage caused by scar-tissue adhesions. I had first gone to the ER at 3 a.m. that morning, but the ER doc misdiagnosed my condition as constipation. I was in extreme pain and also too weak to tell my husband when he first came home that I needed to return to the ER. By the time I returned, I became violently nauseated, and vomited repeatedly. Then a gastro-nasal tube was forced down my nose and into my stomach. I began hallucinating at approximately 5 p.m. the following day. I did not realize I was hallucinating, and thought my experiences were real. Some were quite coherent, such as believing there was a book sitting on table at home with a photo on the front showing a sculpture in white marble of a woman's hands holding the Bible, with barbed wire wrapped around her hands. I thought the sculpture had won the Nobel prize, and the book was the biography of the sculptor, whose mother had gone to extraordinary lengths to keep him safe from the Nazis. Some may actually have occurred during dreams, and were wildly improbable, but I don't recall ever going to sleep. At one point, I thought I was at a rest stop on the NJ turnpike, and saw the Nobel-winning sculptor there, working on a wood sculpture. The sculptor turned out to be the maintenance man on the hospital floor. I pulled out the naso-gastral tube three times, but was unaware that I had done so, although I do remember believing that I was buried beneath peat moss and feeling suffocated as I clawed my way out. I also thought I was at a party being given by a law firm which had sold its building to a school for gifted children, but I (also a lawyer) had been deposited there by my nurse and her boyfriend, who were supposed to have taken me to the OR. Some scenes from a book I had been reading made their way into my delusions, which were so real to me that I actually called some of the people involved later on and asked if the events had really happened. The hallucinations began before surgery and continued afterward. When I awoke from anesthesia, I thought the hospital staff was painting the doors to my upstairs bathroom, a project I'd been involved with before the blockage struck. I asked them how they knew what colors to use. They thought I was joking, and confirmed that they had gotten the colors right. Finally a neurologist was summoned, and I told her I was on the passenger ramp at La Guardia airport (instead of in a hospital in NC), and that I'd been born in Havana, Cuba (instead of Baltimore, MD.) I believed myself to be a member of the ruling party in Cuba (pre-Castro) and during an outdoor ceremony, an earthquake had struck, causing ancient monuments to come tumbling down. Later, I was bobbing in harbor waters near a huge ocean liner, with plastic bottles and other detritus floating by. The foregoing are only a small sample of the multitude of hallucinations. Occasionally, I was only an observer of astonishing events, but usually I was a participant. I recognized my husband and friends, but told them about many of these events, believing they had happened. The neurologist diagnosed clonazepam withdrawal. My other doctors later said this was unlikely, as I took clonazepam in small amounts on an erratic schedule, and was not dependent on the drug, although my prescription called for 3 mg. daily. Physician friends said my symptoms were more likely the result of sepsis. I did contract a urinary-tract infection from the catheter, and was being given antibiotics. Additionally, the nature of my underlying condition, and the delay in diagnosis and treatment, may have contributed to the sepsis. Hallucinations occur in only a very small percentage of sepsis sufferers, and in only a small percentage of those withdrawing suddenly from clonazepam. However, I do fit the profile of those who do experience hallucinations with sepsis, being female and aged 62 at the time of this description. After the three-day period, I returned to normal, although believing that my hallucinations had been real persisted for some days afterward. I recovered quickly from the surgery, although the pain persisted for a while, and I was walking easily (dragging my IV with me) through the hospital halls. This was the ONLY symptom I had. Not all the hallucinations were unpleasant -- in fact, they were highly interesting -- but they were incredibly complex. I still remember all the details, better than I remember what actually happened yesterday. Except for the urinary-tract infection, I had no other adverse effects from hospitalization -- no fever, chills, nausea, sweating, headaches, trembling or anything of that kind. The bowel blockage and the surgery were of course not fun, but in a way the hallucinations were fascinating. My own feeling, and that of the doctors who know me and my medical issues, is that my experiences were caused by sepsis, not clonazepam withdrawal, and the antibiotics I was given are probably what saved me.
