Have you ever had an ear infection as an adult?

I guess I'm ignorant I never thought adults got them, just babies and kids. Hell no... I've had a headache that's lasted for 3 days and there was a ton of pressure in my ears and I figured it was a sinus issue went to the Dr... double ear infection. No wonder babies cry so much, it hurts!

  • Lots of them. I had emergency ear tube surgery when I was pregnant because my ear drum was ready to rupture.
