Otitis media: What's the fluid behind your eardrum? If it's from allergies or eustachian tube dysfunction, try Guaifenesin + phenylephrine pills or syrup to help it drain. If it's an autoimmune response causing otitis media (super rare), check back with your rheumatologist. If it's an infection, check back with your ent. In any case, good luck!
