MEDICAL HELP (SWIMMERS EAR?
) I was recently staying at a hotel with a swimming pool and I was in the pool almost every day with little relatives.
On the last day before leaving, I was swimming to the bottom of a semi deep pool a lot, but nothing was bothereing me then.
I was woken up the next morning at about 6 (which is very early for me on my holidays) by a sharp pain in my left ear. My right ear was sort of aching, but my left one was way worse.
One of my relatives had brought these ear drops which are supposed to clear out any water out of your ear after swimming.
So the next day she put those in, and the day after that my ears stopped hurting.
But now I have been home for a couple days and today my ear started hurting like crazy again and I could hardly take it anymore.
So one of my friends had these drops (because her son had ear infections a lot when he was small) and she said it should help because i most likely had an infection.
Basically, the drops went in 2 or 3 hours ago, and i can now hardly hear out of my ear. She only put it in one of my ears (the left).
I can hear myself breathe and swallow and sounds that are inside your body that you don’t normally hear because it feels like my ear is plugged up.
I am a little worried, because I’m thinking that there might be some kind of damage that has happened to my ear internally.
I would really like to keep my hearing as I enjoy music greatly and play a number of instruments.
If you know anything that might help, please let me know ASAP!
This feeling is uncomfortable and I would like to get rid of it as soon as I can.
