I went to the doctor yesterday for an earache which turns out is an infection. I was prescribed some antibiotic drops, Ciprodex, and put them in my ear as soon as I got home. Instead of the relief that I was expecting I immediately felt like a hot poker was being pushed through me ear canal right into my nose. I continued having these wave like pain contractions go through the same path until about 10:30 last night when finally completely exhausted was mercifully able to fall asleep. I now have a new respect for the old saying "An apple a day". My best advice is if you are ever given these drops, don't expect welcomed relief.
