I’m fearful I’ll be joining the club soon, hoping to find some guidance here. I have been experiencing pain and fullness in my left ear. i went to urgent care and they diagnosed an ear infection, prescribing antibiotics. It has not improved, and I have an appointment with an ENT next week. My hearing seems to be ok, although the ear feels full which makes me think perhaps it’s not. I attend a fair amount of concerts so that was a concern. I was also on an airplane before this happened but I fly often.
Everything I read says that hearing loss is rarely painful. I’m hoping that’s the case, but wanted to get some insight here.
