We’re all a “one of a kind,” however, when it comes to medical issues, I find comfort when the health care provider knows what’s wrong. I (DeAnna) have had many medical mysteries over the course of my short life. I had a pancreatic problem that I suffered with for 24 years before finding a answer. Once it was found, I found little comfort in knowing it was a rare condition.
I’m up against another bizarre medical issue. The third week in December, I started a cold and allergies. That led to my ears feeling full, lots of pressure and itching. I’ve had a few adult ear infections and thought I must be starting one. I went to see the wonderful nurse in our organization who thought it was an ear infection too. I took azithromycin for five days and at the end of the treatment, I felt worse. When the nurse looked in my ears she saw pimple looking things on and behind my eardrums. I went to see a doctor. He said he’d never seen anything like that and sent me to a lab for an ear culture. The culture results were staph aureus. Basically, the same staph from boils. I started taking another antibiotic and was hopeful I’d start improving. After five days on that 10 day prescription, I wasn’t feeling better, in fact worse. I’m very fortunate to have medical friends whom I can contact and ask advice from.
I would like to ask for your prayers that this will clear up. That the Great Physician touch my ears and heal them.
