may16-19:minor sore throat
may 20:***@**** bad ringing.poor hearing.wince of pain every now&then.by this point researching im convinced of middle ear fluid/E-tube issue.feel negative pressure behind eardrum that is relieved when i hold nose&blow.hearing test bad results.doc:"it is in cochlea.seperate issue from swimmers ear.maybe perm"
may22today:start anti viral&steriod
Why my E-tube bad then? seems a slim chance to get both afflictions simultaneously in same ear if unrelated. i just hope doc is wrong and my ear clears up soon. it feels gunked up it must be conductive hearing loss please!!!!
