As some of you know I’ve been sick since January when I was diagnosed (using a CT Scan) with pneumonia, since then I’ve stayed sick with one thing or another. I came down with bronchitis, strep throat, laryngitis and now apparently I have allergies. To be honest I think I have a sinus infection because my entire face feels swollen and now I can’t hear (literally) out of my right ear. It started with low hearing, kind of like the way things go quiet when you go under water.
(In the picture you can see my face is red/pink and getting swollen/puffy)
It grew into feeling like the pressure of needing to pop. Most would think I just went on a plane or something or yawned and need to do it again, this does NOT work for me. For those that do not know, as a child my ear drum burst due to an ear infection. In my mid 20s it would happen again. This time my doctor says there is no sign of an ear infection and my ears are clear, no wax. As two weeks has passed since I’ve been to the doctor I have lost all hearing in that ear, minus the buzzing sound that happens every once in a while. The doctor has no concern over the loss of hearing but if you are anything like me you’ll know it is something that bugs a person. I went online to look for ways to pop my ear.
