    Can be something really simple, but you should really get it checked asap. Do they know, why you come? Maybe you can get an earlier appointment, if you tell them. Or go straight to the hospital, when they don't have any space for you.

    the appointment I have isn't specifically for my ear, it was a monthly check so I can get my meds prescribed again, but I figured I can just ask about it while I'm there, unless the ear is urgent

    Not coping at all with this flare up. My best friend is struggling at the moment, so I said I'd come and visit her on Saturday, but this means doing work to get it out of the way - but I have no motivation or concentration right now. Just want to sleep all the time.

    Here if you need someone to talk to. :console:
    Thanks :hugs: hope you're okay. Got out eventually/had meeting.


    -----------------------------

    Would write this in diary, but currently out in fields by ducks, and its cold/dark, and don't really want to leave.

    Ramble
    Spoiler:
    Show

    Meeting (which I chair) was rubbish, people late, plus I just didn't manage it very well. Just this whole new role I've got to organise things and make decisions, and I find that difficult enough normally, but even worse atm just because I'm feeling rubbish.
    Got emails to write, and just in general am scared of doing those.
    Friend has said it'd be too late to meet up, though looks as though we can tomorrow - which is fine, but just a shame.
    Also admin person in dept. who said I could email her if I had any problems/about anything hasn't replied yet. I realise I sent it late Friday/she wouldn't have been in over weekend, but I'd have thought she could reply today, and just feel a bit stranded with essay/work. She ignored my last email, too
    Just feel awful, and just worried about everything.

    want to comfort eat, but toothache is horrible :/ need to see dentist pronto I think, had calmed down last week though. Might be that I have a bad ulcer on that side now...


    Just bleh Booked GP appointment for next week though, so that should hopefully be good. Not sure what they'll say though, every other time I've been they've just sort of said "well see how it goes/try and get a schedule and see how it goes" and I try I think, but is difficult, and been like this for 18 months or more now :/ 12 months since I started getting help/talking therapy.

    Just don't know what he'll say/do - not sure I've seen this one before either (didn't like previous woman)

    Also know that last year I was like this term 2, maybe a bit better, and then got worse in term 3 with exams. Just dreading next term now

    Sorry for the ramble

    It could be something as innocuous as a build-up of wax but might be something worse. I don't think waiting another week is a good idea if you can't hear you don't want any damage to be permanent.

    I hope it's just wax, though I clean my ears pretty often (ingrained in me by my mum who has a phobia of dirty ears)

    I can hear a tiny bit from that one but not very much. like if I answer the phone and hold it on the left side I kept thinking the phone was broken because it was so quiet but when I switched to my right ear I could hear them fine.

    I tested it in a lecture today by covering my left ear - I could hear the lecturer as normal, and then covering my right ear - couldn't hear him :/ it's the same with the tv, I can't hear it if I cover my right ear

    That sounds like it could be something serious. If it was me I'd probably even go to a&e if I couldn't get a GP appointment sooner than Monday.


    When I had unbearable ear pain I went to a&e and, after a 5 hour wait ( :rolleyes: ), they gave me a hearing test etc to check for problems there. I don't think this sounds like something you should just put up with.

    You should not wait longer, if it is wax, it will be a quick check and they say don't worry and in 2 minutes you are done. If not and it is something not that easy, you will have regrets your whole life, because it is damned annoying onyl to be able to hear on one ear.

    As Sabortooth said, if you not get an appointment asap, then go to A&E. I hate going to A&E, too, only because I can't get an appointment at a doctor, but it makes absolutely no sense to wait a week.

    I've been aware of my anxiety for a long time, though never has it been this bad at such an unhelpful time. I have to complete a video interview for a placement year within the next 4 hours, and all I've been able to do for the past couple of hours is panic about it non-stop. Having never experienced it this badly before I have no idea what I could do to calm myself down and get it over with..

    Any advice is appreciated, seriously.

    should I ring up tomorrow morning, explain what it is and see if they can get me an appointment ASAP?

    Could you take a bath or make a cup of tea or something to try and calm down?

    Sorry, probably not very helpful Hope your interview goes well.

    If my house had a bath plug i'd be willing to give it a go . I tried tea earlier, had a more negative effect than positive; the caffeine put me on edge
    Thanks, I hope it does too c:

    Yeah, they are there to help and it is frustrating for doctors as well, when patients wait until it is too late/to worse, so don't worry, you won't annoy them.
