A few Sundays ago, I awoke in the middle of the night with my right ear in pain. The pain moved so that it was the majority of that side of my face. Oh god the pain. THE PAIN! It did not go away until that evening, so basically, my whole day was spent in bed pitying myself.
Two weeks later at work, my ear starts to hurt. It felt like the inner ear was swelling up, although it wasn’t nearly as bad as the past Sunday. Even so, I wanted to kill my ear.
Mother was of no help, she didn’t even have any old wives tales to give me for a cure. She did suggest it might be swimmers ear from getting water in my ear from the shower.
So far, ear has not been in pain for awhile. I hope this time it lasts. I do think my mother’s wild guess about swimmers ear might have actually been correct.
