Hello, I am a 48 year old woman.
I had a cold for a week followed by a middle ear infection and outter ear infection on my left side.
I was on antibiotics for 10 days.
The middle ear infection has not given me any pain at all. When it first came on I had a lot of pressure under my left ear. That has subsided but now I have numbness all around my ear. It feels better at times - usually after some ibuprofen - but has been going on now for over a month.
I have had some pain in my head and in the back of my neck. Ocassionally I feel tingling in other parts of my body like my arms and legs and fingers. All of that came on at the same time.
I saw my dr. at the beginning of all of this but have not been back yet. I am considering making an appointment this week. Any ideas as to what i going on? Has anyone else experienced this?
