I have neen to two Drs, and one ENT, and I'm still having the same problems after taking 4 different antibiotics and 3 courses of predisone. The ENT said I have fluid on my ear and it looks like allergies possibly- when he looked up in my nose with a wand, the right side was pale. I was allergy tested and told I don't have any. I just stepped down from 20 mg 2x day to once a day, with the prednisone, and all the problems- which had gotten better- returned. I have the ringing in my right ear, right side of head feels full, face below jawbone is tender, throat is sore and I feel somewhat dizzy and just generally it's difficult to carry on today. I have a CAT scan scheduled in 10 days because he wanted me better for it. I called the ENT and they have me coming back in in 5 days(!) to be rechecked... I need relief.
