Hi Bill,

I was given the antibiotics for a mastoid infection. I kept complaining about the pain that was in my head on the right side behind my ear. On the MRI it showed fluid in the mastoid. Eventually they decided I should start on antibiotics to see if it helped, then my ear started oozing and smelling. The GP would look at my ear and say it is very red you had better have another course of antibiotics. I had four courses before they got the result of the ear swab which showed the best antibiotic to use, then 4 courses on that. The doctor said my ear looked better and stopped the antibiotics. The ENT specialists have said I would be deaf if I had a mastoid problem, but I have the opposite problem. So who knows what infection they treated but it worked.

I saw the GP today for the name of a infectious disease specialist. I asked how long should I wait to see them? He said it wasn't urgent as I had already been sick 8 or 9 months. I said it may not be urgent to you but it is to me. He just doesn't get it I think. When I rang for the appointment they asked was it urgent and I said it is to me. They gave me an appointment later this week. I can't believe my luck. Hope he is someone with an open mind and a lot of knowledge.

Maybe IBS is being misdiagnosed all over the place if you get your info from others experience. I have trouble with the muscles more when going to the toilet, both urinating and defecating, and have to go back several times sometimes before I have finished. This problem improved on the antibiotics also. Have you had antibiotics for anything since you have had the head pressure?

How about you test the pain sensation by sitting on your legs for a while and you should get pins and needles which normally are quite prickly and uncomfortable? It was suggested to me to try putting my hand in a bucket of ice. I may try that if I have the opportunity.I reckon it would be a good competition to have with my sons.

I am so uncomfortable in bed. I get this pain in my lower back and hip. I know it comes from my head throbbing. It happens in the day as well but more so at night, if there is a lot of noise like my husband snoring. Strange isn't it.Do you have that lower back pain?

When I see this doc I am going to stress the head pressure and see what the response is. Will keep you posted,
