    Sorry to hear about your ear problems Beth, good luck with your healing.
    My ear problem is different. I suffer from tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Sometimes it turns into a high pitched scream that has sent me to my knees before. Almost a searing pain and physically disabling.

    What with being in an artillery unit for three tours in Nam and 30 yrs on heavy equipment and loud HD motorcycles at the same time.
    It has calmed to a steady roar now in my sixties and I can live with that I guess.

    You, me and millions more, it can be nerve-racking, mine goes 24/7. 11 years in a steel mill before hearing protection was required didn't help. Sometimes it's hereditary, sometimes not.

    Plus 60s-70s rock n roll baby! My heaing isn't that great now.

    I hope you don't have much discomfort as you heal Beth.
    Antibiotics and time will fix you right up, as I'm sure the
    old Doc gave you some......and after the antibiotics are
    done, you may wish to strengthen your immune system
    'cause the antibiotics kill both bad and good bacteria.....

    My hearing is pretty good, especially for my age, despite
    what I have subjected my ears to over time........
    and I have gotten comfortable hearing those
    'little voices'...........:na-na::crazy::dontknow::lmao2::ya:

    Great, after reading this I am paying attention to mine......I tried the meds for a few months and it did absolutely nothing. I have learned to sleep with background noise but sometimes it is to much.....

    Hope you're feeling better Beth. As for ringing, my ears ring constantly. It seems louder when I focus on it, so I just ignore it. It'll drive you nuts if you let it. Outside on a summer night I can't tell if I'm hearing crickets or if it's just my ears.
