Customer Question

I was given ear drops to help reduce fluid in my ears and I lost almost all sense of balance within two days. What are my options?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?
Customer: Not now. I had a severe head cold earlier when I lost some hearing. After the cold cleared up my hearing was still bad and that is when I went to the doctor. I was given one steroid that made me break out and then another that caused the loss of balance.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I take blood pressure medicine and have for years.
