tried a lot of doctors and meds till I described my symtoms to an old friend of mine (when I say old I mean she's maybe in her early 80's)
well she told me to gurgle a cup/half warm salt water every two hours and man did it work (in 5 to 10min. the pain subsided, hearing returned, the swelling went down enough to use the drips at least)
so if nothing else works you could always try old remedies
I am not a doctor or trying to play doctor and my old friend isn't either so I would suggest you consult a doctor before trying this and good luckView Thread
