Anxiety over ruptured eardrum

Edited , 2 users are following.

just wanted to know it anyone has experience anything like this? i am so afraid and paranoid. i read about ppl developing vertigo and im afraid of being dizzy. Im afraid of anything being medically wrong with me.

my mind is still playing the what if game. What if it doesnt heal? What if it happens to the other ear? What if i lose my hearing? I dont want this to continue for years and years. I feel like i will go crazy.

    1. stop allowing your mind to play the what if game. It’s only going to make you feel worse and won’t change a thing.
    2. take your medication and wait One day at a time until it gets better. There’s nothing to be gained by panicking before the treatment is even done.
    3. take a deep breath, relax, and follow up with your doctor when the medication is done. Then you will have peace of mind that your ear has healed. and that’s it! anything else is just the mind being negative and based on fear and not fact. Take care!
