Prior to the tinnitus, I had a difficult molar extraction on the right side followed by a skin infection and 5 weeks of hives and swelling all over my body.

Now then, hopefully that paints the imagine of my current situation. I can see Claritin possibly working best either without antibiotics, or in combo with cyst-busters. The first leg from Roatan to Atlanta was heavily delayed, so much so that I began to wonder whether I’d make the connection back to Boston and how that would affect the drugs I had just taken (the 12-hour pseudoephedrine was the last one I had).

An unlicensed care provider administered Benadryl to an elderly resident who has been suffering from seasonal pollen allergies. Flonase for eustachian tube dysfunction? I took my second dose this morning, and can feel everything loosening up some more.

Despite the magic of Global Entry (which eliminated any wait at immigration and sped us through customs on a separate line), Atlanta airport failed us: they couldn’t get the baggage out of the plane fast enough. blurred vision; dry mouth; nausea, stomach pain, constipation; mild loss of appetite, stomach upset; warmth, tingling, or redness under your skin; sleep problems (insomnia); restless or excitability (especially in children); skin rash or itching; dizziness, drowsiness; problems with memory or concentration; or ringing in your ears. Prof. That made a noticeable difference: during the second flight the next morning the sharp pains during ascent were less intense and the ear equilibrated a bit faster, say half an hour instead of 45 minutes. Retrieved 2014-04-19. All of the symptons got worse for two months will working myself up to 100mg of topamax but once I was taking 50 mg twice daily for about three weeks I started feeling much better and they are mostly if not all gone. Dr.

Goldstein — who as he humorously put it became a world expert on pressurization of the eardrum in various animals (gerbils were on the long list, I believe) while doing research for the Air Force — reported that while I had “done a number” on my left eardrum and it was in a slight “negative” position (pushed inward), there was only a touch of fluid behind it and no sign of infection. Great! Because of my own observation that I was hearing myself in my left ear depending on the eardrum’s position, and that overall I felt that my hearing had diminished, he called for a hearing test which was fine except for more sluggish movement in the left eardrum (forget the name of the test). By coincidence I had a hearing test done less than a year before for different reasons (earmold for headphones) so I’ll try to dig that report up to see what had changed. As for what caused the blockage, the doc said I probably either over-Valsalva’d on descent, or more likely had a cold I didn’t know about. The latter possibility took me by surprise as my breathing and nose were more clear in Roatan than they had been in years. Then it hit me: because I felt so clear I had stopped taking the Claritin that I had been taking since the hay fever season began in Boston.

To treat conjunctivitis caused by an allergen, your doctor will probably prescribe an antihistamine to stop the inflammation. There is another twist to the story. I asked Dr. Goldstein about why my jaw/neck/throat felt so tender and painful after ascent, and his response took me by surprise: it had nothing to do with my Eustachian tubes. Instead, he asked me whether I ground my teeth. I replied that I do, and then it suddenly dawned on me: I do remember chewing quite a bit on my regulator while diving, and especially during those painful ascents. I thought nothing of it at the time since it felt like biting down on a bite guard, but in retrospect it all made sense.

And lo: for the first few days after returning to work I actually could not open my mouth fully to, say, bite into a burrito. It has since subsided, but I have become much more aware of my teeth grinding during the day. There’s a silver lining to every cloud, it seems! Now, two weeks later, I woke up today without my eardrum in that negative position — normally requiring a quick Frenzel to pop back out — and my hearing has largely returned to normal. Curiously, I heard more tinnitus in my left ear since the accident but today this has suddenly subsided as well (I normally have a touch more tinnitus in my left ear). So I seem to be healing fine! And always carry some extra 12-hour pseudoephedrine!

Thanks again to everyone for their help. If so…what I have found really helpful is at the very FIRST sign of pressure¬† I take behind the counter sudafed and ibuprofen. Like in diving emergencies, that made all the difference.
