    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    ear infection

    About Two Weeks Ago My Throat Was Hurting And It Felt Like There Was a Lump In My Throat Shortly After It Felt Better I Started Getting A Really Bad Pain In My Ear I Figured It Was Just An Ear Infection So Being A Full Time Student I Utilized The Free "Doctors" On Campus. I Was Prescribed Amoxicillin To Help With The Infection. I Have Been Taking It For About 4 Days Now My Ear Doesn't Hurt Anymore Except For When I Hear Crackeling Sounds And Everything Sounds Like People Are Talking BeHind A Fan. I Have Been Sleeping On A Heating PAd Every Night To Try To Drain Anything That May Be In My Ear. Im Having A Really Hard Time Hearing People. Since Starting My Antibiotics I Have been Getting Really Bad Migranes And I Feel Dizzy And Nauseated Most Of The Day. Is There Anything I Can Do To Get My Ears Back To Normal And To Not Feel Dizzy And Sick?
