ABOUT A MONTH AGO, I NOTICED BLOOD COMING OUT OF MY RIGHT EAR. THAT SAME MORNING I HAD BEEN SCRATCHING MY EAR GENTLY WITH A TOOTHPICK ( I KNOW A NO, NO). I DID NOT GO DEEP INSIDE JUST THE OUTER SURFACE. AFTER THAT I HAD A SOUND OF POUNDING, THE DOC SAID MY EARS WERE CLEAR, RECOMMENDED NASONEX. SAID I HAD A BACTERIAL OR VIRAL INFECTION OF THE INNER EAR. I HAVE NO EAR ACHE OR PAIN IN MY EAR. PREVIOUS TO THIS I WAS TOLD THAT I HAVE A RETRACTED EAR DRUM. I'M NOT ACTUALLY DIZZY, JUST OFF BALANCE. DOC GAVE ME A MED FOR DIZZINESS, AND NAUSEA, NOT REALLY SICK TO MY STOMACHE, JUST A TINY BIT QUEASY. MED MAKES ME SLEEPY. SECOND DOC SAID I HAD LABYRINTHITIS, AND IT WILL GO AWAY. DON'T FEEL LIKE I HAVE AN INFECTION. HELP.
