Thanks for your well-wishes everyone!
Thankfully, I have been going to the same doctor since I was like 8 years old. I've had enough ear infections in my lifetime to last the entire human race for eternity!!! So yeah, I pretty much know when I have one. Thats what happened this last time- I called my doc, told him what was going on with my ears/throught- and the fact that I did'nt have a job at the moment and was without insurance- he simply called my script in to the pharmacy for me
which was such a relief! On top of feeling bad, I felt horrible because I did'nt know how I was going to afford a Dr. visit-let alone the prescription.
I took a prednisone about 2 hours ago- what a difference!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can actually eat/drink without pain while swallowing
So I'll stay on them for a week or so, and see if that fixes it- if not, then I'll have to scrounge up some $$$$ and go see the doc.
The thing that I hate most about my allergies is that I have no warning signs. I'll be perfectly fine one day, wake up the next morning with sinus/ear infection
but, I know this-and in knowing that,I should stay on clariten or some other allergy medication for the rest of my life. That will be the first thing I get in trouble for if I have to go into the Dr. office! I never take my allergy meds until its too late
EnzoLeya : I cannot stand cigarette smoke!!!!!! One wiff and my nose/sinuses get blocked up! Smoke is the worst irratant of all time IMO
