    Hi all,

    Has anyone had experience of Mastoiditis?

    I had an operation to remove the mastoid bone about 16yrs ago. Since then I have had to have check ups and my ear syringed every 3-6 months. The idea was this would reduce to less frequently but it never has. Over the last 2yrs my ear itches like mad, an itch I can't scratch as it feels to far inside. I get headaches and throat pain as well. I tell the nurse when I go for my appointments but they just put different types of cream in which seem to work for about a week then it starts again.

    Anybody else get any advice on this or experienced themselves, it is getting me down now

    Thanks in advance
