    Have you isolated yourself at home due to our immune system being weak

    I see that some people are still out running around like there is nothing going on right now. I am a little freaked out about someone coming around me that might be a carrier. The scary thing is most people that are carriers don't know that they are.

      Meyati, you are exactly right about an eardrum rupturing when the person is relaxed and doing nothing. I had prophylactic oopherectomy last year and my eardrum ruptured during surgery. You aren’t more relaxed and immobile than during surgery. I had been having what I thought was post nasal drip.....nope, it was that darn ear. It took 2 rounds of antibiotics to clear it up. I hope you feel better soon and get to see an ENT soon. The tinnitus can become unbearable!

      @Dawsonsmom----Thanks for your support. I've had Tinnitus in both ears since I was about 8- 3rd grade. I get all 3 sounds in both ears. It's one reason I hate fevers, NSAIDs, and acetophenone. They make it so much worse. My temp is normal now, so the sound isn't as fierce. It's still like a jet inside my head warming up. I try to inflate my ears -to get the pressure right, but the left ear starts whistling and popping. I feel like I'm going to pass out and vomit from the pain.

      I've had several friends that hunted in rigorous territory--we don't have stands here, and we certainly don't bait deer or elk, but track them down--the real West. Anyway, getting back to camp, drinking a lot falling asleep and POP-- I've had friends this happened to at the end of a hard rodeo.

      Oh, I don't think the stress helped your ear either--as you say-- we aren't very active after the anesthetist plies their trade. It's just hard, and we are so helpless when we are under for surgery.
