So I went to the doctor on Monday. The nurse flushed my right ear (eeyoooo I know, but a good thing). Since then I can tell that I have some kind of cold thing in this ear.
My doctor said my ear drum was “red.” It perplexed him. It’s a symptom of infection of course. But my ear doesn’t actually hurt.
Now that I know my ear is free of wax, I can tell that something’s not quite right.
It feels like my right ear and sinus is inside a cardboard box. And kind of itches.
O great. I always wondered what I would do with serious hearing loss. Hopefully this won’t end up that way.
Since it doesn’t actually hurt, I’m going to wait a few days and see if it clears up.
