I went to the doctor on Friday to get my ears checked. They had been hurting for a week by then, and motrin wasn't helping. Talking on the phone hurt too - it was too loud. No other symptoms. Just ear pain.
The doctor looked in my ears, saw some wax in one, had her assistant clear it out and sent me home. She didn't check my nose, throat or lymph nodes. She was curt and told me to take motrin if it still hurts.
So it's Tuesday and my ears still hurt. Motrin still isn't helping. I could hear popping in my left ear during my run yesterday. I think I'll make another appointment with a different doctor. I think I'll change doctors - this one was assigned since my old doctor moved to Texas.
*sigh* so that's another copay to have another doctor potentially tell me that nothing's wrong.
