    When does it ever stop.
    One thing after another.
    I have been suffering with a baterial infection on the outer left ear for 15 days now. Seen two doctors. On the second antibiotic now. Also lost 2 fillings in molars last week. What is going on again. Any one else ever have these problems?????
    Thanks. Soft teddy hugs.

    When it rains, it pours. I think this is true for everyone. Even my healthy friends complain about this.

    I hope this is the end of it for you. On the plus side, if you are taking the right kind of ABX, it may well make you feel better than ever before. This has happened to a number of people and usually signals a stealth bacterial infection. In that case, long-term ABX may be very helpful.

    Love, Mikie

    Exactly. Docs said it was bacterial infection.
    I'll hang-in there. Not much else I can do. Just wish this blown-up ear infection would subside.

    Thanks again.

    and the worst part isn't over yet.
    I went Tues. 7/22 to the ear, nose, throat specialist as referred for my ear. They immediately did surgery on it and inserted a tube in the outer inflammed lobe on top and stitched it. They pain was unbelievable. It still has not drained at all. I go back today and he said he may have to go in there again. He put me on a strong antibiotic (third kind now, after seeing him the 3rd reference), and a steroid. I don't know if I can take anymore of this.
    Keep me in your thoughts please all of you. I gotta pull through this one. These immunes won't co-operate.

    Sorry to hear of your problems,I have no advice but to suggest you edit your title on the post to reflect your problem so that someone with similiar problems can pick up on it. Take care, fondly, June

    Last Tues. they did surgery and said it was hemotoma. Well, stitches got infected and the ear was worse so surgery again on Sat. On my third antibiotic in a month. Hopefully next week stitches come out and everything is okay. I think I did lose more hearing. They don't have a clue what caused it. Friends and relatives say it is all the meds I take. Who knows. This fibro thing always presents new circumstances.
    Soft teddy hugs to everyone who has been supportive.

    Nink, thanks!
    It is my belief that what I do is good for me. I know my body, they don't. So I will keep on course however long it takes.
    Thanks again. Soft teddy hugs.
