Fluid build up in inner ear, lymph node swelling and severe back pain. Antibiotics not working - what could be potential causes?
Several conditions: It sounds like your eustachian tubes are not venting your ears until higher pressure has built up.

Some such as mastoiditis can be very hard to clear even with the right antibiotic. I suggest you see an Otorhinolaryngologist (ENT) to help you sort this out. ...Read more
Trace of Leukocytes trace blood in dip test. TAH 10 weeks ago. Bladder resection. 1course of antibiotics & no bugs. Bladder, tummy, back pain. Causes?
