I've had an ear infection for the past four weeks (or so) and after about week two it started the ringing, mine is a constant high pitched sound. I was given antibiotics tablets to fight the infection which didn't work, then told its a fungal infection and so was given drops that just seemed to do nothing. Was sent to ENT as an Urgent appointment and they cleaned out the ear. I told them about the ringing/high pitched sound and they became the fourth and fifth Doctor to tell me that the ringing should go once the infection is sorted and should end soon (one did say will but I'm taking the should rather than will). The ear cleaning was done this past Wednesday, 13th of Feb 2019 (it's the 17th of Fed) and now I'm starting to fear that this is going to be permanent.
So my question is, is this likely to go or stay? I know its early days when it comes to the healing etc. but I am so tired of this sound, so annoyed by this constant high pitched noise that I'm white knuckling life. I've been trying to keep my mind off of it but can't, I'm so scared that this will become part of my life that I'm actually spending time in tears.
Please tell me there are others who've had it and it has gone and does anyone know roughly how long that might take? Thank you for any replies.
