I had a mild ear infection a month ago, but it never cleared up fully, even after taking a regimen of antibiotics my doctor gave me. Ever since then, I have had this feeling in my ear, kinda like there was water in there that I couldnt get out, but it was inside my ear.
Two weeks ago I discovered that if I hold my nose and suck in, my left ear was pulling straight air through, so there is some sort of hole in my eardrum.
One week ago, I would wake up with crust in my ear, which I would clean out with a q tip.
Yesterday, I found blood crust in my ear, and when I cleaned it out this morning, the q tip was soaked with old blood.
Things have been crazy at my house this past month, and it dosen't help that my doctor is retiring and I am in between doctors right now, so it is a bitch to make an appointment.
I hope that I can regain my ability to hear, because I feel like I have only 25% of my hearing.
