    Unhappy Ear Infection + Tinnitus-Help!

    Iím 34 years old and have been prone to ear infections my entire life. The way I typically know that I have an ear infection is when my eustachian tube gets clogged up. Usually I just take about ten daysí worth of amoxicillin and the infection clears right up. About a week and a half or so ago I woke up with ringing in my left ear and my right ear clogged up. I went in to my local Target Clinic, and I did have the start of an ear infection in y left ear. They gave me amoxicillin, and within a day or two my right ear had unclogged and the ringing in my left ear was gone. Then about Thursday of last week the ringing in my left ear came back and hasnít gone away since. Itís a persistent buzzing sound and itís driving me crazy. I went into my local urgent care yesterday and was told that I have a ďlittle bitĒ of fluid trapped in my middle ear but other than that my ear looks good. I was given azithromycin to clear up any infection that was left, and was told to call my primary doctor for a referral to an ENT if there is no improvement within a couple days. There has hasnít been any improvement so far, and Iím getting worried. Is this post infection tinnitus going to be a permeant thing? I did listen to music with my headphones once wail on the amoxicillin, could I have permanently damaged my ears? Is there any chance that this tinnitus could go away?
