My tinnitus went from occasional and very mild to very severe in the course of a week and a half. I just had a baby at the end of January. I stopped taking my allergy med that I only seemed to need while pregnant. I'm not sure how much good it was doing me. Now I'm not taking it because I am breastfeeding. I developed a mild ear infection a week and a half ago and have been on antibiotics since Sat. and Flonase since Tuesday. Each day the noise is getting much louder and louder. I have told my Dr and she doesn't seem concerned. I don't know if there should try taking an allergy pill and some pseudoephedrine. The thing is if I take it I won't be able to breastfeed anymore. Does anyone know what is going on with me? I only hear out of the ear that is infected. I fear for what will happen if something isn't done soon. I can't get anyone to help me.
