bronghitis and middle ear infection
I was diagnosed with bronghitis about 2 months ago. But since then my ears and haert are not the same.

It feels like my ears are burning from the inside, and i am short of breath.

My haert also beats at a abnormal pace.

I went back to the clinic two times now and its the same middle ear infection. But I cant drink any antibiotics anymore because i have had it 3 times already.

I am really in pain, and i wonder if you can help me please?

Dear Pixie
If the ear infection does not clear up you should see an ENT surgeon - you may need drainage tubes called gromets in the ears. I am also worried about the shortness of breath - you should at least get an ECG and Chest x/ray done. Please visit a doctor either privately or at the nearest provinical hospital for further tests?
