I had one my junior year in high school. It didn't hurt, but I couldn't hear through the ear and I often felt nauseous and dizzy, which sucked because I had baseball and this velocity training thing. Antibiotics didn't really do anything, so I went back to the doctor and the nurse put this liquid in my ear and after a minute or two, I poured it out. I really don't want to remember what came out, but I was better after that.

i recently overcame an ear infection and let me tell you it is terrible...it comes with extreme pain and you can't hear...how about you? lol?


I went through the extreme all the time as a child. Got so many I developed a disease that ate through my skull via my ear canal (this is no joke) and was heading to my brain. If the doctors hadn't seen it in time it would have given my brain meningitis.
Fun stuff. Now I have a drilled-out ear canal that has no bones nor ear drum. Just a big useless ear canal with a biiiiig plug to make sure the hole in my skull stays safe.
Yes. Ear infections are SCARY; and they are one of the most painful things that I can think of *nods* you have my empathy.

No, but I had a nasty bug in my ear once, though. It crawled inside while I was sleeping and I didn't realize. Then I woke up later screaming, with incredible pain because it had crawled in pretty deep and died there.

Yes, and it sucks. I hated it. I was on antibiotics for 3 weeks, couldn't hear out of my right ear for a month. I've been very careful since then.

I did and it was painful! I was 7 when it happened and because it wasn't cared for on time I ended up with modern to serve hearing loss in my right ear. It sucks, but I manage.

It sucks when I can't hear people and when they just think I'm messing with them. Sometimes when I go "huh" multiple times they get irritated and ask "Are you deaf!?" I would answer "yes I am." They then end up shutting up or apologizing. I would then explain as to why I'm deaf.

Why don't I tell them first hand? Well I'm not one to tell my problems to just anyone. Besides I don't want to be seen differently because I'm deaf because when I do people tend to speak to me slowly and that irritates the hell out of me.

Then again I manage and no I don't want a hearing aid. I can got get one, but I don't want it. I can hear perfectly in my left ear and besides I take good care of it. I mean I do have an idea on how it is to not hear.

I got them quite a few times when I was younger. They were awful! One of them was so bad I couldn't sleep at all, just stayed up crying all night. Haven't had one in quite a few years though.

oh heavens....so true...people think I'm screwing with their heads and then I have to tell them I don't have eardrum to hear them with ^ 'are you deaf' situation happens a LOT. Talking slowly to me *nods* a LOT. I tell them just talk louder. i'm not trying to read your lips, all right?" in as nice a tone as I can manage which, on a good day, is pretty nice, :lol:

It never bother me if anyone knew I'm deaf or not. However it does bother my half brother.. He even grow hair to cover up his hearing aid :p.

My brother talk LOTS.. like 99% of the time. He alway tell me if you do all of the talking you don't have to listen! :p

I got them a lot when I was kid.
When I was in my twenties I got a bad one. The doctor gave me Augmentin to deal with it... an enhanced form of Amoxicillin... I told him it might not work, Amoxicillin never worked. The infection spread to both of my ears and I was put on Vicodin for the pain the 10mg ones... and Cipro for two weeks before it started to clear up.

Now if I get that feeling in my inner ear I go to the doctor and when they tell me what I know I have them prescribe Keflex. Three days later, no pain, no stuffy ears and I feel normal again.
