It's not my Sz this time

I hate it when even I begin to doubt my own sanity and blame everything on my Sz.

I’ve had some balance issues the past two days… a bit dizzy in the head… a bit agitated by a small tenderness and ringing in my left ear… everything seems too loud… noise hurts.

I do know the schedule change in my job is throwing me a bit… but it usually doesn’t give me an ear ache.

so I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out what med side effect would give me an ear ache…

None… it’s not Sz… I think I have swimmers ear again… I’ll see if the eardrops help.

It’s hard to keep an eye on the physical health when I also jump to my mental health instead. I get so irritated at others who do that to me… now I’m doing it to myself.

I also have a ringing that started in my left ear a few months ago. I went to the ear clinic and an Audiologist did some tests and she referred me to a ear nose and throat specialist. I was told that I have Tinnitus and that it gets worsened by middle ear pressure. They want to fit me with a grommet in order to relieve the pressure and in order to help with the tinnitus but I haven’t gone for the procedure yet. Good luck with your ear and health issues. I hope it gets sorted out soon.

Can the grommit it be fitted while you are awake or do they put you to sleep to do it?

I’m not familiar with the procedure @Jimbob

My Ear Nose and Throat doctor diagnosed me with Menier’s Disease, a problem with the inner ear that made me dizzy and fear falling down.
