Also, have been getting a lot more migraines too. I was wondering if there was any way I could be allergic to the Teflon rod??? Anyone else experienced anything like this? I can hear great out of that ear and haven't had any pain in that ear. Please let me know if anyone out there has the same symptoms? Thanks
I was under the impression that the rods are made out of material that is hypoallergenic. Mine is titantium, according to the surgeon and is MRI-compatible (although I hope I never have to have another MRI for as long as I live). I think that you should talk to your doctor about your symptoms.
