I have been having trouble with my ears for about 6 months now. The first few times I was seeing my GP for pain in my left ear. He treated me with antibiotics and 2 steroid shots for an ear infection. I was back a few days later still in a lot of pain. He increased my anitobiotics for a longer period of time and gave me oral steroids. Ear got better but returned in April. Went back to GP and he said the ear was infected again. Another round of antibiotics and steroids. Few weeks later I was having pain in both ears. Went back to GP who said I had 2 ear infections. He sent me to an ENT. ENT claimed that my ears were fine and that the pain was due to dental "braces" which I have had since last October! He gave me some medicince for pain and sent me on my way. Was still having a lot of ear pain and developed a plugged feeling and ringing in my right ear so I went back to GP and told him about the ENT and I also went and talked to my orthodontist who said that he has not heard of such. Went back to GP last week due to plugged ear, ringing, and pain and he sent me to have a CT scan. CT showed that I have polyps in my sinuses and a deviated septum but they were not sure if that had anything to do with my ears. Got another appointment with the ENT for next week. I'm getting really frustrated and wish that SOMEONE could figure it out!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
