I too have the dreaded ear infection, so know the pain and irritation you are feeling. I seem to get one yearly, either in the right ear or both. Has knocked me off my balance too. I have got the antibiotic and steroid spray for 10 days, so let's hope it works for both of us

Take care



Oh you poor couple - do hope the spray etc works :) keep smiling xgins (There is no other way but to grin and bare it no not gin and bare it grin)


I must congratulate you as I am not always a happy bunny and the pain seems too much to cope with, so your ability to smile and giggle your way through is fab. I have a good sense of humour, you will see me in the lighthearted posts enjoying them, but when it comes to walking out of the door and being able to smile and cope when in a lot of pain, well I'm nowhere near as good as you.

I really truly hope your ear infections clear quickly, as a child I was prone to ear troubles and later had a perforated ear drum which, it must be was agony, but it cleared up, so,,sending healing thoughts your way. Foggy x


you have to laugh sometimes, it sort of helps you through . when i'm in a lot of pain i try and think about the people worse off then me.

gentle hugs x


i tend to drink too much wine and feel totally f.... in the mornings when i do, but it's nice while i am drinking it


Oh oh if only I could feel totally f#@$€ d in the morning pmsl fairy cazz you havebto stop putting your ear against the neighbours wall to

Hear what the am doing lol they obviously talk so much s#×@t that it has ckogged up your ears and caused infection lol hugz. Petal


Poor you,Ear infections in both ears!! one ear is bad enough!

An old "Recipe" of my dear old nan, that always did the "trick" for me when suffering with my ears, I (sounds dreadful!) ears so clogged up with wax, can happen over night. I just get up totally deaf as a doddo!

I did"nt believe it @ first after trying all types of lotions & potions but have you tried Olive Oil just a few drops in each ear (one @ a time of course) and just leave it there whilst you rest your head on a pillow for about 5 mins, till cooked!! always did/does the trick for me even if its just to relieve the discomfort of it all??

Apparently came from the 1st World War when no medicines we available?>

Worth a try, I sincerely hope it gives you some sort of relief if you do?

Been in bed myself for 5 weeks soilid with "Flare-up", afraid I am not as cheerful as you, feeling rather sorry for myself in fact as on the old Oral Morph @ moment as pain unbearable, which induces depression but getting over nasty bout of shingles, UTI & on top have bed-sores now as I"m so thin (5stone)!

Anyway sending you gentle loving hugs. Praying pain subsides soon with Meds. Love BB x


Wow I am sorry to hear that you are having a flare, but as I read your comment I see that you are taking Oramorph . I think you are the first person on here that I have seen that that's it. It was good to know I am not the only one who takes it but I am also sorry you are in so much pain you can't get out if bed. I at least can get up and make it downstairs but not a lot else. My other half tries to understand but he just can not relise how much pain I am in. He thinks that if you take Oramorph it takes away all the pain and you should be fine! I do find Oramorph does help but I only ever take enough for it to dull the pain not take it away completely, as I think I would just be asleep all the time if I did ( but as you can see i do not sleep at all well as it is 3 am and i am awake!!!). Does the Oramorph take away all your pain? My GP seems happy to keep increasing the amount until I am pain free but something in the back of my head doesn't think that's a good idea

I hope you feel better soon

Wow, whats going on? I have an infection in both ears too!


Thanks Caroline for reply. I am of same mind-set as you, I only use Oramorph as emergency cases, such as know with added pain of sringles (horrendous pain!) & UTI. Otherwise I fear we have no where left to go if we took it on a daily basis. For the past week GP increased Dose just to stop me screaming out in pain. Thankfully my GP is quite happy to prescribe it for me. As before I practically lived in hospital (have other chronic pain illnesses aswell as fibro!) before. So grateful to have it @ home @ least husband manages my medication & can "sleep", whats that as pain keeps me awake but like I said I"ve had no option to take "knock-out dose" recently. To be honest I would have done anything to take away unbearable pain.

Do you find you get depressed after taking it? because I know I do, thats why I only use it as "Emergency!"! Mind you 5 weeks unable to get out of bed has now left me with bed-sores as pain intolerablle, husband carries me to en-suite just too weak & in too much pain to walk!

I can"t remember what my downstairs looks like! Also you know whilst on it you have no interests, hav"nt even switched TV on in our room & I love to read but find it impossible to concentrate, as OM just knock me out!

Lovely to hear off you, I also hav"nt heard of anyone else on Oral Morphine, was beginning to think I was the only one, so thanks for that.

Best wishes to you & hope your OM free for a long time!! I can"t wait to get to haidressesers as been in "Flare-up" since before Christmas & look like a Dulux-dog, can"t even see through me fringe!! Oh well thats the least of our worries. God Bless you Love Lynn xx
