poppy ear - March 19th 2009, 07:26 PM

As in, my ear keeps popping, and feels icky/blocked. But just near the surface - if that makes sense!

It's been happening on and off since I had a night of severe vomiting nearly 3 weeks ago.

Is there anything I can do that might ease this?
Would a pharmacist be able to advise anything, do you think?

I have my regular depression etc check-in with my GP next Friday, so I can raise it with her if it's still an issue then. It doesn't hurt, it's just... annoying and uncomfortable.
I was just wondering if there was anything I could do in the meantime, or if it needs medical attention before then.

Thanks!

Ever hear of an ear infection?

Yep!
Could it really last that long?
And be an infection where there's no external sign of gunkiness etc?

I don't think there is anything you can do except leave it be. I'm guessing that the wax in your ear has got a little 'distorted' and I don't suggest poking anything in it. The doctor might give you penicillion or more than likely just say that it'll go away on its own.

Yeah, if not treated. You could try getting some ear drops from the pharmacy which would help clear out any excess wax.

Otherwise, talking to a doctor would be the best idea.

Well, it eased off overnight and has been fine all day.
Then it came on this evening quite badly.
Not sure why that would be... and I'm feeling tearful, too. Probably I have some psychosomatic stuff going on. Again. *sighs*

It's really bad again today. In fact all my sinuses are painful, too.

Kathey, I think your best solution would be to go to the doctor soon and have it checked out so you can find out what is exactly wrong. You might have an ear infection or the drainage from your sinuses could be pressing on your ears. Whenever my sinuses are really, really bad my ears hurt. The doctor has told me it is because of drainage. I highly suggest seeing your doctor so you can be diagnosed.

Thanks.
I see my GP on Friday [she's only at the surgery Thurs. and Fri. days anyway. I don't feel comfortable with the other doctors there.]
I've always had dodgy sinuses.
I do see an alternative health practitioner tomorrow as well, so maybe he can advise something too.
