So I went to the doctor's again. This time I got a different one and I LOVED him! He was the best doctor I have seen: he didn't try to rush me out of the office, he let me ask all the questions I wanted, and he explained how processes in my ears worked. He was by far the best doctor I have seen. He took a look in my ears and said he could see fluid in my ears - ironically the one that makes the less noise has the more fluid in it. He said that it wouldn't drain away because my eardrums looked in good condition and the only reason they would leak is if my eardrum was infected or if there was a hole in them. I am a little confused at that because I was sure there was some fluid on my ear that came out - maybe that was wax? Anyway, he said that the body absorbs the fluid so eventually it will go. He told me to wait until mid-April, and then come back. If it doesn't go he will refer me to a specialist which will take 6-8 weeks. He said he could refer me now if I wanted but the doctors would be likely to do something about it, and what they would do is put a hole into my eardrum to let the fluid drain out. He wasn't keen on that, and as you can expect neither was I. I am scared that would do some permanent damage. He said that he sees people with T about twice a week, which makes twenty six patients in a year. In a year, only one out of the twenty six actually sees the specialist. That reassured me. He told me that usually the best thing to do with this is to give it time. He was sympathetic and said he knows how frustrating it is, but the best thing to do is to give my ears time. He said if my T got worse then I should go back before mid-April. So I am going to wait until April 17th which will be three months since my T started. Hopefully I won't need to go back! I trust this doctor more than the others. Besides, I know that there is fluid in my ears because I can HEAR it and feel it moving around. The symptoms match up, and it explains why my headaches are just on one side of my head at times. So I am going to do what he said and hope that by April 17th I will no longer hear a have ear pain, headaches, crackling or hear that annoying ringing!
