Wow, and I thought I was the only one..
Went on vacation to Europe 3 weeks ago with a cold/congestion.
Something happened with plane trip and altitude, got very painful
middle and outer ear infection, ear drum preforated, two weeks of drainage..
Still stuck with stuffed/full L ear, constant ringing and muffled hearing.
Been on antibiotic for three weeks. ENT just said to keep taking it and see what happens..
Think it's time to try the alternative route.
