Hospital

hospitalFellow coma victims, today I went to the hospital to have my ears looked at in fear of my brain remembering Menier’s Disease and Tinnitus, and to evaluated my hearing loss. Because my walking is terrible from coma now I wanted to eliminate my ear afflictions from that problem, yes I’ve had problems walking before. I previously knew there was no cure for Menier’s or Tinnitus. The best outcome of coma was to forget both, my biggest problems before accident. I have experienced Menier’s just once since coma about 3 years ago, previously it was regular, tinnitus caused a high pitched squeal in the old days. My hearing loss now was due to wax build up, something I may be able to manage. A good thing about this consultation was my preparation, I wrote what I wanted covered as below. To show the doctors before so I wouldn’t forget. I think I will adopt this approach for all future consultations about anything.

ENT

History – Tinnitus, Meniere’s, Coma, Balance which is worse now because of coma, need walking stick

Hearing Loss – Wax build up

Infection – Spreading from ear to jaw and neck. I’ve use ear drops regularly to clean the wax, perhaps that is the cause of infection

Issues – Can’t sleep on right side as my ear hurts to lie on. It sometimes hurts for no reason, maybe 10 times a day, not sharp pain but I’m always aware of the region. Occasionally I get a sharp pain in both ears when I put my little finger in to clean the wax out like I frequently did in the past. I try not to do this in my right as it often hurts but previously I did.

I believe anesthetic and penicillin may have helped last time I visited a doctor a week ago. I’ve noticed slow improvement but am still very aware of my ears. I think the ear water pump helps the most.

Gastro

Had issues since coma, can’t remember before

Family issue perhaps, mother, sister etc

Gaviscon alleviates the symptoms which are extremely uncomfortable at times

Reflux

Ulcer perhaps?

One thought on “Hospital

  1. A most interesting day of discovery and epiphanies. Perhaps, ironically, coma is the cure for incurable ailments like meniere’s and tinnitus. It’s a tough choice between the devil and the deep blue sea. Which should one opt for? Constant and frustrating ringing in one’s ears or three months of oblivion in a coma and its after-effects? At least we now know all it takes to help you to overcome slight loss in hearing is regular cleaning/dewaxing sessions at the specialist clinic :-)) For that, there is a cure!
