  • it could be the higher volume of blood you now have due to the pregancy which in turn may cause more pressure in your inner ear. i would talk to your doc again and see about manybe going to an ent.

  • It could be a very bad ear infection which you wouldnt want to go untreated, My son was give augmentin and he is just imune to it. When the oral antibiotics dont help there is a shot they can give you that clears it up ASAP. I would head back to the doctors ASAP

  • I have chronic ear infections. I've had them since I was a baby. Another mom on here suggested droplets of peroxide and warm water in my ear. It felt wierd at first, but it worked almost instantly. The itching, tightness, and burning went away.
