I am male 44 yrs old single and slim average weight/height. 8 yrs ago had left ear infection whilst abroard needed 2 injections in butt and antibiotics to fly back home. Though seemed to do trick! H ave had re-occuring rear infections to left ear since at rate of 4 each year! Has involved time of work and course of antibiotice. I insisted on referral to ent specialist saw one about 18 months ago. Had ct/mri scan all came back clear. What was established after hearing test had sensoronial nerve damage to left ear/ hearing slight loss tinitus to left ear. Also deviated left nasal spetum which dr felt result of two past nose jobs aged 21 and 28 respectively. Was going to operate but when saw xray felt very narrow cartlidge to upper nose and could be dangerous. Prescribed steroid spray for nose which made worse felt like being struck with hammer so discontinued use. Consultant told me to take anthestimines steam a much as I can and said live with it as best I can and signed me off with open arrangement if I needed to see him if condition worsened. Last year developed weakness to left hand have been referred to neurologist and awaiting nerve conductive tests for considered left ulnar nerve damage(pending march 2006). Now to date have been signed off for 3 weeks with labrythinitis to left ear, sever upper resporatory tract infection/viral infection throat really bad feel phlem dripping down back of throat have very bad headaches with nose bleeds feels like something munching through brain!! When I wash hair scalp feels numb and hair feels dead. Have also developed weakness to right hand side arm and needless to say very tired and depressed, feeling sick in morning gp has put me on second course of amoxycyclin and metoclopramide to take the sickness away. Gp has re-referred me back to ent specialist I am now into my third week of sickness and worried about job and next plan of action. Will neurologist re-do tests as my head does not feel right! Albeit mri/ct scan done within last 12/18 months when ent looked at me.Ic
