I think my head is gonna explode 馃く

It鈥檚 going to take another two months before ear/nose/throat doc can see me, but I鈥檝e been to the walk in 4x since the month started about my ear. I don鈥檛 know what I need, nothing they prescribe helps, I need the ENT doc but seeing a specialist takes forever. I can鈥檛 keep taking this pain. It鈥檚 spreading from my ear to my neck. My throat and teeth hurt. My tongue even swells. My lymph nodes are always swollen. The rest of my head aches. I feel yucky and out of it. It always feels like the side of my head is about to blow. I take Tylenol and Advil but I need so much it鈥檚 starting to hurt my tummy.

I don鈥檛 think I can wait another two months. It definitely feels infected, but antibiotics aren鈥檛 helping.

I鈥檓 starting to get worried. I need to be healthy for my son and getting done this work, but it hurts so bad all the time.

Nobody cares. Help is not coming.
I had swimmers ear, once. The doctor kept treating it with antibiotics. It kept coming back. I was finally referred to a specialist at Dana Farber, and she had the common sense to pull the infected dead skin out of my ear and gave me some swimmers ear solution.

I recommend very highly that you go to the emergency room at the hospital. You will actually be treated there.

I hurt myself very badly taking tylenol and ibuprofen when I broke my tooth. It was the only thing that helped the pain. I now have THREE gastric ulcers, which require an endoscopy and I can't eat regular food. Please be careful. TIME it. 4 hours apart...and try to stretch that to 6.

Specialists are so hard to get an appointment with. Hoping you find a temp relief in the meantime.
Do they have any sort of diagnosis? Could it be your sinuses?

That's horrible. I hope you find a solution quickly.
