And I won't get a doctors appointment today for love nor money.

it's been ramping up for about a week and now it is throbbing and hot and very very sore.

What can I do?

I'm taking ibuprofen and I have a hot water bottle on it.

sad feel a bit nauseous and miserable.

If you can't get an appointment at your dr surgery wait until it closes and then call the out of hours dr.

I know this sounds daft but is it your ear on the outside, or inside your ear? confused

inside at my ear drum but not deep in my eustachian tube does that make sense?

It feels a bit better since I put the ear calm in it. So hoping it'll work but if it's not better by the morning I'm going to the OOH doc
