I went to the ER again yesterday... As it was a Holiday here, it was a bit difficult to be seen by an ENT. Blood was visible so we got worried. This time I went to a different ER, hoping for a different point of view.

The doctor who saw me also told me that there was too much blood to be able to see the damage. However she decided to clean my ears, and also told me that it was necessary for an ENT to see me...

So, today I called in and even though there was no space available, they squeezed me in, even before the other patients. The ENT told me that my tympanic membrane was perforated, and that I was vulnerable to an infection as that membrane is what protects the ears from infections (and if is broken, it cant do its job very well). She is also worried about my hearing, and prescribed me some medications (four to be exact), and also sent me for hearing tests to find out if the if my hearing was affected.

The ENT asked me to rest, and doesnt want me go to work for 5 days (or even drive). She is afraid I can pass out as the balance of a person's body is affected by this. Im not severly dizzy, but I get dizzy from a moment to the other... Im sure this is just temporary and heals by itself very soon.
