Ear infection

I have a problem with my ears. Less than a month ago I had the same problem. Never before in my life.
I hope you understand me, my mother tongue is not English and I am not good at medical vocabulary.

Yesterday I was walking outside, it was very windy and felt cold. My ears were aching because of the wind. After 10 min of walking I put paper to my ears, too late. Now my both ears feel "locked" and full of pressure. If I close my nose and mounth and then I blow: it is very difficult and I hear odd sounds.

I also feel like catching a cold: my lower back is aching, I feel tired and my nose is full of mucus. When I sneeze, the mucus comes from very deep inside. It is thick and still white (but will turn out greenish).

I had this same problem a month ago and at that time I was sick three long weeks. I went to a general doctor after 9 days and she said both ears are full of liquid and very, very red. She gave me antibiotics. They didn't help and I went to a ear-specialist and he gave me more antibiotics... But I guess I was cured because of the time, not by the medicine.

Now I am afraid I have to go through this all again. This is starting just the same way.

I don't have any pain. I didn't have pain last time, and the doctors didn't believe me.
Last time it was difficult to hear, when the infection was the worst. That was the main problem along with the sense of pressure in the head.
Last time the left ear was worse, nyt the right ear is worse.

When I woke up this morning I knew what is happening. I am not good at homeopatics, but I read my little book and took Aconitum 5ch 5 pills and Belladonna 3 pills. After 90 minutes I redid the same.
Then I took a nap and felt even sicker. In the afternoon I took Pulsatilla 1M. I don't know if I feel any better. The ears have the same swollen feeling.

I am not sure if I did it right. Did I?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi Maria,

You chose the right remedy, but I think you had to take it in higher potency and more frequently...

Take Aconite 200 Three times a day. Take 5-6 pills on clean tongue, and dont eat/ drink anything for atleast half an hour before/ after taking the medicine.

Keep posting about your condition as often as you can.
If the symptoms get better/ worse/ change, please post immediately.

Take care...

Hi Maria,

Aconite is helpful only in first stages of diseases.
If you read this post tommorrow and if the symptoms are changed in ANY way till then , dont take Aconite.
Post before you start with the remedy.

Take care...

Aconite is usually for sudden onset of condition. This is a repeat of same conditions.

ARSENICUM ALB. comes to mind because you are exhausted. Much sneezing. Also covers many symptoms.

HEPAR SULPH if you are having trouble getting warm. Has the greenish mucus and signs of developing a cold.

BRYONIA has headache and the backache with irritability. "Just don't touch me!!"

GELSEMIUM if you are quiet and just want to curl up and sleep.

KALI BICROM. if actually turns into a cold with tough to blow out mucus. Stringy and tough.

DULCAMARA works with all the symptoms of a repeat cold. A very annoying action of blowing and trying to get relief and just when one feels relief, it begins again. (within same hours)

Your english is excellent. Do not be concerned about medical terms. Say sentences like, "I feel...." How you feel here and there, things that are OK and things that are not OK. Warm tea OK? Or is cold drink better? Covered or uncovered...these kind of things. The absence of pain was a good point, haven't found it yet.

Blessings, Sabra

Hello Maria
Are the ears itchy?
Is this fluid coming out or only the dr could see it? if it's coming out- could you please describe it?

Hello everybody,
And thanks for answering.

I didn't repeat Aconite, because I understood the potency of Pulsatilla was high. I was afraid of taking any remedy.

I started feeling better during the sunday afternoon. I felt worse after taking the nap at noon (yesterday). When I got up, took Pulsatilla and ate something, and I felt better.

Now I have slept a night. I feel tired, especially my eyes are tired. I think if I had chance to sleep, I would fall asleep (thought it is only 10 am).
There is no more pain, nowhere.
I feel my head is full of mucus. It is not disturbing, it doesn't come out yet.
I don't have appetite.
My ears are slightly better from yesterday. I don't feel good about this yet, because last time the infection started slowly.

I am not thirsty (that's normal fore me) and I drink only because I know I have to drink. Doesn't matter what I drink.
I feel cold. (That is also normal for me).

I find it very difficult to select a remedy. All those remedies are right in a way, but none of them tells the whole truth.
Maybe I could take Arsenicum Album, Gelsenium or Kali Briocum...I don't know...

My ears are a itching a bit.(I am atopic, it might be that?) Nothing is coming out from there. Last time only the doctor could see the middle ear infection.

Right now I don't take anything. I wait for a reply.

As silica follows Pulsatilla very well and covers both itching and 'stopped' ears it would be worth using that next.
 
passkey last decade
You are doing well. You have a lot of people caring for you to get better. Be at peace and keep in touch often.

If you continue to feel worse after a nap let us know.

Blessings, Sabra

Hello everybody,

I was almost sleeping all day yesterday. Then my nose started running like water fountain.

That's why I took Arsenicum Album 30x. One doze at noon, second in the evening and the third this morning.

Now it is tuesday morning and the running has stopped.I feel better. My head is heave and feels odd - I know I am not healthy. My ears are not that locked anymore, only a bit.

Do I need anything? Now I think I won't take anything by myself.

Suggest you wait at least a week before coming to any firm conclusion. If things get worse during that week then post again. Good Luck

Hello again,

I wrote about the problems in my ears some three weeks ago.

I didn't take any remedy after the last mail. The situation passed by, the worst thing remaining was the headache. I couldn't pick up anything from the floor without having a terrible, most horrible pain in the head.

Now the cold and problems in the ear are gone - but I keep having this headache.

-The headache comes when I bend down and pick up anything from the floor. (not when I am lying down)
-it is at the back of the head, above the neck
-it feels like the knife is put to the brains and the pain lasts just 2-3 seconds.
-sometimes I can feel the "pipes" connecting ear and throat - don't ask me why...
-sometimes I feel preassure in the head.

I was better between my last mail and this one. I already thought I have survived this all. I am also quite sure this is the same problem as before. Because I never ever have headache.

From your description would think Hepar Sul 30 - 3 tabs each one at 24 hr intervals should help - may even have been the best thing in the first place .

Hi,

I got rid of the headache with Hepar Sulphur 30x. It didn't help right away, but two days after the dozes.
I was one week totally healthy and then the ears started to ache again.

This time I noticed the pain when I was sneezing: I felt pain in my left ear. No other symptoms.
I took Hepar Sulphur 30x again; two doses a day during three days.
This time it didn't help, not a bit. I took the remedy a week ago and I still have no changes.

My mother is a dentist and was suggesting maybe there is inflammation elsewhere in the head, f.ex. in sinus. Because in these cases, you can also feel the pain in ears.

I wonder if she is right, because I do sneeze thick mucus in some mornings. Not much, only once there comes hard dark "ball" out from my nose.

Maria

A single dose of Belladonna 30 may help.
 
passkey last decade
Hi,

I took a dose of Belladonna 30x once four days ago. It didn't change anything.

I still feel the same as on my last message. Not better, not worse. I wonder what I should do next?

Maria
 
Maria&boys last decade
Look up the details on Fer Phos and Psor . One of them should help
 
passkey last decade
Hi,

I have been reading about remedies.

Isn't Ferr Phos for early stages of ear infection? I have suffered about this for a long time.

I didn't found much about Psorinium. I don't know...

What do you think about Kali Bic? I don't have a lot of mucus coming out, but the one that comes is thick and there is some blood in it.

Maria
 
Maria&boys last decade
Dont think Kali Bic, of the Kali's - K Sul is the most appropriate?. But The blood points to Calc-Sul ,Merc,and Psor.
However as the discharge is thick ?sticky? Graphites may be best . If you suffer from chilblains then this is best.
 
passkey last decade
Hi,

The discharge is like glue; very sticky. Not much, it comes first thing in the morning. And it comes mainly from the left side of the nose. Difficult to sneeze out.

What are chilblains? I looked it up from dictionary, but I still don't understand the word.
I am easily cold. Specially on feet and fingers. Sometimes I feel so cold that I don't even warm up under cover, only in hot sauna.

What do you mean by saying "the blood points to..."?

Maria
 
Maria&boys last decade
The fact that there is blood in the discharge points to the remedies I mentioned .
But as you are one who suffers from cold feet - chilblains are red round itchy places on the feet or hands that are worse in cold weather - I would think that Graphites is the most suitable.
First try potency 30c 3 tabs and wait.
If not totally suuccessful try 1m potency.

Hi Passkey,

And thank you: my ear (or sinus) is fine! I took Graphitis 30k.

I wonder if I'll have a same problem next time, what will I do first?
The original problem was a cold wind that hurt my ears and that was one of the main reasons I got them infected.
Shall I start with Hepar Sulphur?

The first thing to do is note down all the symptoms and hunt for the appropriate medicine.

You may get a different set of symtoms,when you get exposed to cold next time.

Hi Murthy,

I am aware that the symptoms might be different next time. But IF I'll get the same desease, what will I do?

Or do you mean that you never catch the same kind of cold twice?

You really should make a separate post.

A] do NOT take any more antibiotics -- they do NOT cure they only suppress and drive the problem deeper into the body.

If you are Fair haired then try Pulsatilla 30 , morning and night for THREE DAYS ONLY .

If you are dark haired and tend to be a bit "up and down"
then try Mercury 30 as above.
