My name is Taru. I am suffering from T. I'm 26 and female. Six weeks ago I came off the SSRI drug Sertraline. Since then, my health deteriorated. A month ago I got my ears cleaned with water by a doctor who didn't know what he was doing. During that week, my right ear felt cold and wet inside. I went to a new doctor and she diagnosed me with URI and give me antibiotics, Flonase and steroid ear drops. I didn't get much better and that's when I developed T. I thought it was the ear drops but it kept getting worse without them. I went to her again and she said I was still infected (I have fluid in both ears), gave me more antibiotics and steroid pills. T still there. Today I go to an ENT and he pokes a hole in my eardrum and sucks fluid out from behind it. The T is now much worse AND now I have pain from a perforated ear drum. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Will I find silence? BTW, I'm going to doctors more than I ever have; of all times to not have health insurance since the Marketplace screws over 26-year-old unemployed millennials. Are there cheap yet effective ways to treat this?
