Honestly, I've never had an ear infection in my life, but last week I went to some immediate care doctor because I couldn't hear well and it felt like water swishing in my ears. He said I had fluid behind the ear, gave me Amontillado and it didn't do the trick. The doctor I saw is not known as the best, but I just wanted to take care of this minor problem. I also have a cough and bit of a sore throat but don't feel sick. Tomorrow morning I"m off so I'm going to see my REAL doctor who I trust and is excellent. Until then, anything I can do that you know of to make the water not get worse when I try to sleep? Seems to get clogged up more at night. Any natural way to fight this so I can get a good night's rest? I have to get up at 6 tomorrow and drive to my appointment, which is an hour away, by 7am. Yep. 7am. It was all she had. Helpful hints?
