    This is humorous but really. I have an inner ear infection in each ear. Do I have two ear infections? Guess I should have asked the doctor while I was there. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    If they are caused by the same bacteria, I think you have one infection.

    If each ear infection has a different cause, then I think you have two infections.

    I don't know - hope you feel better soon. Earaches are miserable to live with.

    I hope you feel better soon! I had ear aches as a child and hated them, very painful. And yes, I think you have two infections, one in each ear. Unless you want to call it a head infection? :D LOL!

    Ya'll are making me laugh. Thanks, I needed that. No, no pain. I had right ear infection (and sinusitis) 3 or 4 weeks ago, went for antibiotics. The pressure in the ears never went away. My sinus are fine but I knew last night I was heading for trouble. This morning I called for appt, had one little stabbing pain in the ear. She gave me a nice shot (burned like a steak on a grill) and antibiotics. I am not in pain. Thank you for your well wishes and your humor. /Regards, Dorothy

    You have 2 ears, so that's a 2-ear infection. Hope you feel better soon.

    You have ONE infection that is affecting 2 ears.
    Hope you have a speedy recovery. Those ear infections make you feel dizzy and disoriented....wait! I think I keep ear infections....I'm always dizzy and disoriented!
    Get Well Soon,
    Carol B

    Oh Dorothy!
    And here I thought I was the one that was wobbling around :shock: .
    Ear infections are nasty, that's why babies cry :XD:
    And they should affect your balance.

    Take a rest. That's right, r-e-s-t, No, I don't think you heard me...REST!

    It will be better in the morning :lol:

    Your so funny! It isn't bad and I wouldn't know if I was off balance or not. All my life I have walked into the door frame with my right shoulder. I am so used to it I just back up and aim for it again. I usually make it the second time. When Tom and I met it took him awhile to get used to it. He knew I didn't drink but he'd see me bounce off of the door frame. He is used to it now. He made some really good catfish and fried potatoes for supper. I might get a little mileage out of this ear ache!

    Ummmm, not much better than catfish and fried potatoes, unless you add fried green tomatoes and hushpuppies.

    When's he doing it again? That's my kind of meal! If you wait about 2-3 weeks, I can bring the fresh green tomatoes! :thumbup:

    ok, I told dh about your ear infection. He googled it and it's called a "bilateral ear infection" = an infection that affects both ears... So now you can sound really sophisticated when you tell people that you have an ear ache :D
    I sure hope you start feeling better soon.

    I'm no nurse or doctor but I'd say that unless you can look in one ear and see out the other or unless the infections can find some way to meet in the middle it's two.

    Bilateral or not when it makes my head feel like a lampshade and the floor slant it's not fun and I'll bet your's isn't either.

    A little tip my doc gave me: to help clear your ears after the pain has gone, MUST BE ON ANTIBIOTICS( I did this on day 3) you hold your nose & breath and blow; like when you fly or go down a mountain, and your ears will pop and the fluid will drain,yah, you can hear again.I tried it and it works.Oh, and last but not least I wish you a speedy recovery! :thumbup:
