Anyone have any ear problems after babys birth?

My girl was born in Feb. She had a tramatic birth..sort of...her shoulders were stuck for a while.

Afterwards I developed a severe epidural headache and an infection in my uterus and had large amounts of antibiotics with an IV...

During my hospital stay 6 days long, I experiences horrid ear clogging, told every DR that walked in my room. They said it was nothing.

When I got home I still had ear clogging...or stopped up ears...cant hear.

Then it got better for a few its back again.

I am NOT sick....and its driving me crazy.

Worried it could be caused by some issue from my delivery or sickness....what do you think.

I am making a ENT appointment today by the way :)

  • Hmmm, I'd be curious to hear how your ENT appt. goes. I haven't heard of ear issues from birth, but I guess you could have ruptured an ear drum pushing or picked up some nasty infection in the hospital.
