So I have an ear infection. Itís been going on for a month. I went to the doc last week and was prescribed antibiotics. After 4 days of taking the antibiotics, I thought I was allergic and turns out my panic attack imitiated anaphylaxis and I ended up getting discharged from the hospital after 10 min. The doctor at the ER said she didnít see anything in my ear (assuming the infection cleared up?) but I had only taken 11 of the 30 doses. I stopped taking the antibiotics for 6 days and I started up again last night (which I know I shouldíve waited for my doctor to come back bc heís on vacation and you should never stop taking antibiotics.) I took them because it seems like the ear pain has come back. now Iím on my 3rd dose and Iím worried that Iíll develop complications from the ear infection and die because itís somewhat untreated. I canít sleep or think about anything else. So worried. Iíve seen articles about people who die from ear infections. Welp.
