My left ear is plugged up and on occasion I have twinges of pain. I've been looking up symptoms for an ear infection, but most everything I look up says that a fever is also a symptom. I'm not sure I have a fever, and I don't have a thermometer to check. Is there anything else it could be? I also have a headache and am exhausted, but I think that may be due to stress...

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

i'd go and see the doctor. if it hurts, and is clogged up, and you feel like crap, thats worthy of treatment, whether its actually infected or just congested and not infected yet. you're broke, right? how long has it been like that? does yawning do anything? have you tried a decongestant nasal spray?

check out www.earthclinic.com they offer a lot of home remedies. Looks like hydrogen peroxide is what they suggest. I use this site a lot. Hope you feel better.

Well, I went to the doctor today and he flushed it out (I always went to him when I was younger, but I don't think he remembered me, haha). No ear infection, it was basically the wax build up that was making it hurt.



I forgot how weird that feels, and about getting dizzy afterwards...

If your ear hurts, go see a doctor. I say this because I'd get upper respiratory infections for years with stopped up ears, but no fever, until all of a sudden the poor ear started to really hurt, and lo and behold, I had a huge cholesteatoma (skin and wax tumor) blocking the entire eardrum, had one surgery and might have to have another!!!!



WAAH!
