5 weeks ago I had an all day coughing fit and with each cough felt more pressure building up in my right ear. Blowing my nose every 2 minutes of the day, pressure started in the left ear. One week went by, I finally went to the Dr. Diagnosed with a Sinus Infection, he gave me a round of antibiotics, 2 different RX nasal sprays, and hydrocodone cough syrup. While my sinus and chest congestion has subsided, the pressure in my ears have not. Baseball in right ear, golf ball in left, my voice echoes loudly in my head, ear ringing, vertigo and the worse part is hearing loss. Went back to the Dr. he gave me a Medro dose pack 4mg. On the first day of taking this, I felt my ears begin to pop. The next day, same pressure and I'm on my third day of Medro Pack, still not working. My stress and anxiety level is at an all time high and while the Dr. told me the anxiety could worsen my symptoms, how am I suppose to keep it from stressing me out? Will this eventually go away? If I let it go on much longer, am I going to have permanent hearing loss?
