I have a problem with my ear. Inside my ear. It has been about a week. At first I just thought I scratched the inside of my ear and it hurt. But it has not gotten better and now it seems to hurt worse. Last night it really hurt when I laid on that side. It hurts when I touch it.
I called my doctor and he is home sick. I told him to get the flu shot. Every year I give him hell for not getting the flu shot and this year he is home sick for a week. Maybe next year he will listen to me.
Anyway he thinks I have an infection in my ear. Not an ear infection. Like I scratched the inside of my ear and it got infected. Or I ruptured my ear drum. Either way I am back on antibiotics. I have to see if that helps in a few days and if it doesn't I will need to call a ENT doctor to get my ear checked out. Fingers crossed.
It is funny. I had a talk with someone recently who was so sad that I had RA. I said that I appreciate that but for me the RA is a pain (no pun intended) but the infections and other things I get from having RA are more challenging for me. So far nothing I can't manage.
