Right let me start from the beginning....in March went to my GP with severe dizziness. I was told I had a polyp in my left ear.... my op was booked and in July they removed the polyp and was told I have had a underlaying inner-ear infection and the dizziness was vertigo. I have had the infection for nearly 7 months now, I have had 8 courses of antibiotics ( different types and strengths ) the last being amoxicillin which I had a ADR with ( ADR adverse drug reaction ) now at the present day ( 1/9/14 ) I have still got the inner-ear infection and last week went ENT and awaiting another op which I was told I would probably have to wait 28 weeks for. But my problem is. That it is affecting my life and my work and my everyday living. And no-one in the medical profession seems to care much about it. This is what I have at present on a daily basis
1. Mild to severe dizziness
2. Severe pain on the left side off my head and neck and eyes
3. Pain in both my shoulders
4. Mild to severe pains in my chest ( told by Dr at ENT it was muscular strain )
5. Feeling of shortness of breath and a achy type pain in my lungs
6. Mild to severe stomach pains. Which have now caused me not to eat
I'm drinking plenty of fluids. And I'm on painkillers. I also have high BP but the is stable and controlled by LOSARTAN POTASSIUM 50 MG TABLETS. as ramipril wasn't agreeing with me.
I have got to the point now where I cant take it any more. I cant go on living like this. I'm losing sleep and losing weight rapidly. I don't know where to turn to so if any one has any tips or suggestions please reply. Thankyou in advance
