I can’t recall the last time I’ve ever had an ear infection so I didn’t know what to expect when my ear started hurting out of nowhere.
Never in my life have I ever wanted to rip out my ear just to make the pain stop. The kind of pain that makes you go into the fetal position and prevents you from doing anything. The simple things we’ve come to enjoy in life, eating, sleeping, even daily tasks as walking around were impossible with the amount of pain.
Vicodin, I’m not a big fan of opioids due to high addiction rates and the dependency feeling they make you have. “Take one or two every four hours” more like, “only works for 2 hours”
tl;dr got my first ear infection, they really hurt.
