Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- 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
- My mother is 86yrs old and prescribed with nifedipine 30mg once a day and
She just got tooth infection and also has essential hypertension
