May be: To have a middle ear infection you must actually trap mucous inside the ear chamber. That mucous can persist and interfere with hearing for a week or so after all the germs are killed off. Once the mucous drains through the Eustachian tube, air returns and hearing improves. ...Read more

6 weeks post septoplasty/sinus widening/polyps removed. Normal to feel inner ear popping/tickly sinuses, swelling after zpack/prednisone? Worried!

Don't worry but call: Call your surgeon and let them know about your symptoms. You may have some persistent fluid in the ear (serous otitis media) which is not a major problem. However your surgeon should be notified for appropriate followup and care which may include a change in antibiotics, decongestants or imaging. ...Read more

Sharp pain (sometimes feels like severe cramping) around my left front hip bone. I've had normal bowel movements. Healthy 34 yr old female.?

Hip disorders: I am assuming it is also not related to your monthly period. There are various disorders you have to consider. Hip pathologies such as arthritis of your hip or trochanteric bursitis of the hip need to be ruled out. Disorders of your left sacroiliac join which is the fusion of your tailbone and your iliac bone can refer pain to the front. Entrapment of your femoral nerve can also be a possibility. ...Read more

Healthy Immunity: I am shocked that no physician has calmed you down and explained that you are normal; your situation represents a healthy immune system and that you should ABSOLUTELY not be worrying about this. Our immune systems keep us from getting sick every single day. It is always fighting off bacteria, parasites, viruses and other foreign material. If one is thing they can often feel their active nodes. ...Read more

Had ear infection tht spread,  jaw cldnt open &  stabbing pain in head behind infected ear. Pain in head has returned months later. Shld I b concerned?

See you PCP: Always pay attention to a new or recurrent/worsening pain. This could be a recurrent infection or mechanical damage from the previous infection. Or maybe you are grinding your teeth at night. A quick look in your ear and exam of the jaw and teeth should go a long way to ruling out these possibilities. It is always better to have things evaluated early BEFORE they have a chance to spread. ...Read more
