I continue to get a recurring earache combined with a sore throat. (When I swallow, I can feel teh pain go up to my ear through my eustacian tube). This has been going on for almost three months now. The first time, I went to the Dr who gave me a 10 day supply of antibiotics, my symptoms went away but within two days of completing them, it came back. I went back to the Dr. and he prescribed the same anti-biotics. The same thing happened. It went away and returned within days of finishing the anitbiotics. It continues to occur about every two weeks now. Sometimes switching from the right side to left and back. I finally went to an ear dr. who said he couldn't see an infection, but noticed I had thrush. He gave me medicine for that along with allergy medicine. I normallly take claritan, but it did seem to help, so He prescribed Zertec and also gave me samples of Allegra. Neither of which helped, As i am sitting here again with another earache which hurts when I swallow.

Can anyone give me some advice? I am starting to think it is all in my head. (no pun intended)
