Re: HELP ear pressure & cant pop ears when i tried got very dizzy-cant even blow nose
Well you have one of two things going on.
1) an internal ear infection.. fix? Anti-biotics, decongestan&expectorant, saline rinses, and in severe case a steriodal shot, motrin/tylenol.
2) an imacted ear infection with retained ear infection.. cure? Long duration of anti-biotic (21-28 days), decongestant&expectorant, saline rinses, steriodal dose pack/shot and motrin/tylenol.
The cure if you can not tell is the same.. only difference is length of recovery.
Dose the bone ridge just above and below the eyes hurt when pressed? Do you feel a pressure shift in you head with a simple lean forward-backward motion? Are you running a fever? 99.4-101 (sinus infection range) ... 101-102+ ear infection range. My son is undergoing treatment 2) thanks to the rotavirus initiating the developement of a secondary infection. It took three days on anti-biotics to make most of the ear pain go away. Now he is perking up and has 25 days of anti-biotcs to go.
While you are waiting to see your GP.. take OTC Claritin D or psuedophedrin to help dry up some of that internal ear fluid and keep up with the saline rinsing.
