hey all. I am pleased to join this group. Best wishes to all who are healing through their ailments. Mine is very minor compared to some i know but i have been recently down played by an ENT. He didn't see any ear fluid in my right ear which has been plaguing me for months on end. My GP saw it, and even the ENT's own audiologist saw it! I was left feeling embarrassed and furious. Is this normal to have a continuous swelling in the ear every morning since March when you get up? I don't think it is. I know fluid can be in the ear for some time, but he said my ear drums were fine. It's that weird squishy swimming pool feeling i get and the fact that my ear drum finally let the fluid out on its own but keeps coming back. This morning it has come back with a vengeance, and there has been some mild facial numbing. It seems to be getting worse in filling up in there. He didn't order (After sleuthing around the internet i found out about some of these tests) EcochG or ABR or MRI or CT Scan to determine if there was ear fluid, because my eardrums are screwed from surgery with scarring. He claimed it was jaw issues and just walked away. Nor did he offer to knock back the ear tissue which he claimed were SOOO thick to give any relief. Am i just imagining things or did i get brushed aside like i wasn't worth his time? My left ear is perfectly fine. Claimed my dizzy spells due to a previous ear infection in March were migranes. I knew someone who suffered terrible migranes and those weren't it. I now have a lump behind my right ear where all the issues are, about the size of a blue berry, or as the GP nurse's said bigger. It is hard and won't move. It is not a pimple because it has been there since July 20th and would've popped by now. You have to lift the ear bowl to feel it as it is just underneath there. My hair dresser touched it as i warned her that it was there because sometimes she pokes me. I have no idea what to do now. Sorry to vent on here, i am just mad that there wasn't anything wrong when there was. We're waiting on another ENT. Has anyone on here had thick eardrums and stlll have ear tubes placed in? Sorry to ask, just curious,
