That’s an ear infection, to those who don’t read doctor-speak.
And I have one in a big way. Including a perforated eardrum. These damn fluid build-ups . . . .
I guess I understand now why the pain of Friday and Saturday wasn’t as great yesterday, since the middle ear infection had found a way to drain. But today the pain is back, sort of like someone is driving a spike into the side of my skull. Chewing is especially painful. Sleeping seems to help, and that I shall do.
So I’m on antibiotics and eardrops. I’m hoping the pain will dissipate son, since it’s a pretty discomforting feeling.
Curse allergies. Curse putting off the doctor visit. And curse getting older.
Oh wait . . . now I consider the alternatives . . . .
