I know you don't have insurance but it sounds like you need to go to the emergency room before you do lose your hearing

I'd go to the emergency. My hubby woke up 2 years ago with no hearing in his left ear. He went to the doc. we had a HMO so the doc. needed to give him a referral for a specialist. The doc insisted it was an infection. it wasn't and we were told after 72 hours there is no  way to get your hearing back. so he is deaf in the left ear. He still has the ringing in the ear. which drove him nuts for a while, now he is used to it. Please get help soon. My DH is a DJ so that even makes it worse on him. Hope everything is ok.

I had this before. Have you been swimming or flying lately? Mine eventually went away. Something to do with fluid. It is enough to drive  a person crazy! Also, we have discovered through our local clinic, warm olive oil in the ears can help. Just a few drops. Anyways, hope that helps!

i had that problem before like a month ago my whole left side of my face got red n really hot my jaw was hurting , and i had a fever! and it was all because i had bacteria in my ear eewwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i know its embarassing to admit but the doctor told me not to use q-tips to clean my ears just a cloth or somethin any way i walked out with 4 prescriptions one of them were vicodin thats how painful it was!!!!!!!! so i suggest u go to a clinic or doctor sweetie.                  and to top it off the nurse joked and asked if someone had they're tongue in my ear !!!!! i wanted to say somethin but it wouldnta been nice so i just looked at her like omg ur kidding rite?                                                           you also may have allergies it said it could be to allergy flare-ups

I have no insurance too, but the ER can not refuse you. They have to take you.
You need to see someone, why because I am 41 and I am going deaf. I have always been pretty much deaf in my left ear since I can remember, but now it is effecting my right year also and I have a cousin that is one year older then me and has cochlear implants already. Please get help, also the tube may be lose and is someplace it should not be.
