About ten days ago, my right ear just went bust. It either will never work right again or is just filled with snot. My doctor thinks it’s just filled with snot. He gave me a prescription for an antibiotic (two pills each day to be taken with food) and the Nasonex nose spray (two sprays in each nostril every morning). I have since taken all the pills and have squirted the Nasonex for a week solid.

And still—I get nothing from my right ear.

I tried to listen to this over the weekend. It was like listening through a paper bag. A wet paper bag filled with snot.

I have since given up listening to anything but NPR. Does anybody have any remedies that may save my right ear? I can’t take NPR much longer.
