It all started last Friday. I had a headache that just would not get better. As the days passed, I also started to get body aches. It felt kind of like having the flu, minus the congestion.
Yesterday, there was a tremendous pressure inside my head. It felt like there was a monster inside my head that was trying to squeeze me to death.
Then all of sudden, I felt a popping sensation and fluid started to pour out of my left ear. The pressure had ruptured my eardrum and I felt immediate relief. The fluid continually poured out of my ear for several hours.
I have antibiotic drops to treat the underlying infection and should be back to normal in just a few days.
