The end of a cotton swab! LOL That's right folks. I've been having trouble with my left ear for a month now. Felt like water was in there and nothing I could do would get it to clear up. I tried sleeping on it, flushing it out with water during a shower, digging it out with a cotton swab, shaking my head until I saw stars, nothing worked.
I had trouble hearing and I finally broke down and went in to see my doctor this morning. The office staff got a good laugh at my expense when they discovered what my problem was.
I'm a cotton swab user and have been for years. Can't stand that wet feeling in my ears after a shower. Now I'll have to be careful because that was an expensive delivery! Not only did I have to pay the doctor for getting the thing out of my ear but I also have to use ear drops for the next week to prevent infection.
Gee, who would have figured the end of a cotton swab could cause so much trouble? But thank God I can hear again:)
