I've had an extremely painful ear for 5 days. Basically I started feeling pain a week ago. The first day was fine and I could cope. The second day was when things became so sore in such a short space of time. I made an emergency appointment with a doctor and he looked in my ear canal, and all he could see was pus and wax. So he gave me anti biotics. I took them as advised 3 times a day, but to no avail. The pain in unbelievable. My condition only got worse over time. The pain was like a hammer hitting my ear, and then sudden sharp pains as if a knife was scraping the inside of my ear sometimes. I'm relatively tough and can take pain, but this was just too much pain for me to keep on working. So I left work early yesterday. and phoned in sick today. Bear in mind I get no sick pay. Not only am I worried that I wont get money, but my condition is worsening day by day. My ear is all swollen up, and it feels like its on fire. Its also as if there is another heart beating in my ear, and every time it beats, pain is excruciating. Sometimes it feels like someone shoving metal objects in my ear and its so unbearable. I will have to take another day off work tomorrow. that'll be 24 hours of work in the week sacrificed. I also can't play football or do anything physical as its just too much pain for me to take. Any suggestions on what I can do?
