Will I think an ear infection is a "minor" shrug it off illness.  I have been in so much pain and so sick for the last day or so. Pain so bad I was in tears, literally. I went to the docctor this morning at a walk in clinic.  I have a double ear infection.  The infection was so bad it caused vomting.  I never had fever with it.  No wonder babies scream and some people use the ER for "just an ear infection".  I was ready to have dh take me to ER just to get pain relief.  I do not know when I have hurt that bad. I kid you not my hysterectomy recovery was not much worse.  So when your babies are screaming from ear infection pain, I now know why............it is horrid. Your ears, your face, your whole head and body hurt from just your ears. The pain radiated like hot, sharp pokers inside your ear, through your face and brain.  IT IS AGONY.  

So never again will I think a Mom who takes a child with an ear infection to an er is panicky.  (Well I didnt really, cause I have done it in thte past, not knowing it was ears)...but you know what I mean.  EAR INFECTIONS HURT.

I don't think I have ever judged anyone for doing that, but if I have, I say I am sorry......take those babies if they need to be taken to anyone who can relieve their agony.

Thanks y'all. Yeah I feel some better.  The pain is a lot less but I just don't feel good.  I think the antibiotics are being mean to me. LOL.

I've had one a few years ago. It was EXCRUCIATING. And so miserable. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Especially poor little babies. Hope you get to feeling better.
