Blog Break

I'm have some sort of weird allergy/ear infection - the docs can't figure out which. It feels like an earache that has travelled into my jaw and up into my scalp, but it's only on one side of my face. I've broken out in hives or some other kind of rash on that side of my face as well, and I'm taking antihistimines and antibiotics, neither of which seem to be doing anything. I'm in quite a bit of pain and 7 Motrin didn't make a dent in it. The only thing that seemed to give me any relief was acupuncture, but that only lasted for a few hours.

Since I can't seem to concentrate on anything but pain, I'm going to take a break until I feel better. I'll be visiting everyone 10 times a day simply to distract myself, so write about something cool. Tinyhands this means you.

Ear infections are the worst. Between the blinding pain, the loss of balance, and feeling like your are cut off from the world since you can't hear shit, it has to be one of the worst ways to be sick. I can't imagine getting hives on top of an ear infection.

Hope you feel better soon.....

I hate it when that happens!! Had a similar experience. The only thing I found that worked on the hive like condition was triple antibiotic ointment. Hope you feel better soon!!!
