You would not believe the difference after having my syringing this am! He showed me the bits that came - both ears seemed to be the same! He said it was reasonably deep in the ear canal - when he did my left ear it was sore but the improvement ws immediate! He said the blockage can cause pain and irritation because of the canal being narrow!

My right ear has always bothered (more irritation than anything else) when I lie down - I sleep on my right side - and I have had "popping" noises in that ear for I dont know how long, which I also got when pressing below my ear. Now thats gone too! All rather pleasant!

Unfortunately my urine seemed to show inconclusive/contaminant results - my gp doesnt quite know what to do at the moment. He was going to speak to my urologist but he seems to be away this whole week. He talked about Macrodantin again but I think I am going to tell him I would rather wait until he speaks to my urologist before giving it to me again. I can't understand what I am doing wrong! I do everything my urologist says for the sample, i.e. MSU samples, I use my Dettol shower gel etc.

Dear Anxious
I don't think it is something you do wrong, I think it just happens, like getting a cold.
