I can not count how many days it has been since the pain of my earache started. It felt like a burning sensation deep within my ear, radiating throughout my entire head. I had never experienced pain like this before. I assumed it was a minor issue and tried to ignore it, but over time the pain grew stronger and stronger.
I tried everything I could think of: warm and cold compresses, ear drops, and medications. Nothing seemed to work. The pain was relentless and unbearable. I felt drained and helpless.
I finally decided to see a doctor in hopes of finding a cure. The doctor took some tests and told me that I had an infection in my ear and I required immediate treatment. I started the medication with hopes of relief, but it was too late. The infection had spread throughout my face, leaving me with a permanent scar and affecting my hearing on one side.
My earache brought me nothing but pain and suffering. I can only hope that someday I will find the strength to move on from the experience.
