Hi doctor, As I have mentioned before, I have fluid in my ears. Still have not seen an ENT yet because you cannot see one without a doctor referring you, which mine hasn't yet. Today I have had some pain. I want to say that it is sinus pain, but it feels more like in my cheeks. It just makes my face feel achy, and sometimes when I yawn and my ear crackles it causes a bit of ear pain. I just don't know what to do. I have had pain like this before but it stopped about a month or so ago. I am just scared that I am not progressing and that my ears are not getting better. I wanted to ask whether this symptom is usual for having fluid/ETD? I understand that you are busy but if I could have you have any ideas about this I would appreciate it. Of course I have told my doctor to refer me to an ETD but I have not had a letter to state when my appointment would be, so until then I have to wait. Thank you for your time.
