As an aside quite a few places do microsuction now, including Boots and Specsavers. Obviously you have to pay, but it can be quicker / more convenient than the local health centre if that matters.
 
Sorry to hear the "progress." Do keep posting.

I know several people who've had similar problems which didn't get resolved promptly because of "Our NHS."

Some got sorted after months or years, some found a workaround, and some are just living with it - much to the annoyance of their loved ones and with some loss of quality of life. You are not alone.

What really effing p!sses me off, is I didn't notice any issues until the audiologist examined my ears and fhe whole olive oil etc... fiasco begun.

As a consequence of it all, I'm already 2 sheets to the wind, and still going full steam ahead. I'm just so fed-up with this crappy existence.

This too shall pass.

It’ll get sorted. It’s just that the route can be a bit …. Convoluted.
 
Currently awaiting appointments from referrals for:
Cardiology
ENT
psychiatry
Dietician

That's the ones I can remember.
 
Must admit that when I read about your ear(s) feeling full of pressure, my first thought was eustatian tubes behind the ear drum and connected to the nose/back of throat. I have suffered with catarrh and hay fever since early teens (so 60 years), plus these days with COPD the amount of crud that comes up from my lungs down my nose is massive - my poor wife has the fun of washing handkerchiefs every week! I often get the feeling that the tubes are blocked, can sometimes clear it by the old method of pinching the nose closed and blowing out against the block, as when an aircraft is descending. Sometimes a decongestant like ephedrine will help, but often it's "grin and bear it"!

I've tried the pinch nose and blow technique - almost passed out!🤣

The doctor did mention my tubes, but couldn't actually see my eardrums, as they were too far in, and hidden round a bend!

I'll try the new drop for the recommended 2 weeks and see how things progress. Hopefully, when I eventually see the ENT specialist they can have a better look and get to the bottom of the problems.

In the meantime, the tinnitus is still driving me crazy and my head feels bleurgh. It's also made me wonder how sensible earbuds are for listening to music? If it's not recommended to shove things into your ears, surely buds aren't a great idea. Hence, I'm probably going to go and buy some Focal Bathys later today.

That's one of the reasons that I am hoping my BAHA will have the correct Bluetooth standard so I can pipe music from my phone direct to them
 
Hi , Doctors in Malvern will not treat any ENT Issues on the NHS.

Mrs Boyband has skin cancer and again Doctors refuse to offer any treatment apart from go private.They will not even offer any recommendations to where to go for treatment.

However , my daughter has MS and the service and treatment received in Hereford and Worcester has been outstanding.

I believe the treatment received is dependant on post codes and attitude of the practice manager.

That pretty shocking.

That is appalling care and I'd be tempted to complain to the Care Quality Commission but then you run the risk of your GP refusing to treat the family at all. CQC closed down 2 local surgeries because of similar poor quality patient care. Both were taken over by other practices.
 
Along with the tinnitus currently driving me insane, I'm not dealing with a cyst in the armpit. The other night it decide to burst during sleep, so I woke to find a revolting mess over my.arm, with more grey/brown muck oozing from it. Now on antibiotics to hopefully clear it, otherwise it might be a trip to hospital to have it drained.

Started fasting yet?
 
Thanks. Feeling absolutely knackered at present; not sure if it's the ADHD drugs, body fighting infection, or something else.
Radiation poisoning from all the lumenescent hands on your watch/stopwatch collection? 😇

Watches? Me? Nah! They're not watches, honest guv. They're circular fabric of the universe instantaneous locator devices.😉😂
