please enter the chat
type and hit reply ;-)
any other medical problems or medications?
Medications Metformin Glipizide Verapamil
any hearing loss or buzzing?
did you have your ears checkd?
no. Ocassional ringing but not during "movement"
did you have your ear looked at
not yet. Concerned that a bug might have crawled in and is moving around. Could fluid feel that way?
Yes, I am thinking that it is fluid
A bug can crawl in, but the bug causes A LOT of pain because it scratches the ear drum
it is quite horrible
But on otherside of drum? No fluid in outer ear
fluid behind the ear
No pain just peculiar feeling
I don't think that this is a bug
but you may have an effusion which can cause these symptoms
What causes fluid
some times it is an infection
sometimes it can occur spontaneously
it can occur under any condition in which the auditory tube is affected
What can I do until appointment next Thursday the 12th?
any history of high blood pressure?
YES. High pressure
it is under controlled?
then you can take a decongestant like sudafed or phenylephrine
this may help the fluid resorb
I hope that I provided you with excellent service? :-)?
Yes, thank you.
keep me posted
