Exclamation PLEASE READ and share your thoughts

I went to my doctor 1 1/2 weeks ago because my ear was hurting a lot. My doctor looked in there and diagnosed an inner ear infection. He prescribed me NO pain medication, just amoxicillan. OK fine. After about 4 days I noticed the ear was really starting to hurt even more even though I was taking the antibiodic so I called the doctor again and yesterday went for another exam. This time I found out that not only do I still have an inner ear infection, but I also have an outer ear infection. My Dr. prescribed me augmentin (antibiodic) Ocuflux (don't ask me why, but this is an EYE drop that they said to put in my ear) and Benzocaine ear drop (novicaine drops). I took all of that as prescribed along with 1000 mg of tylenol and still woke up at 3 am this morning in extreme pain. By the time noon rolled around, I was on the floor crying because I can't take the pain anymore. I called my doctor again for some kind of pain medicine and he told me that I just have to "ride it out". Is this true? I cannot believe this! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
