Ear drum rupture!

CANADA | Tuesday, 13 May 2008 | Views [2817]

What started out as a garden-variety ear infection turned into an emergency dash to Casualty. Intense pain & excessive bleeding from my ear led me to seek urgent medical treatment from a nearby hospital. The doctor told me I had a ruptured ear drum due to inflammation of the ear, which had been caused by my untreated ear infection. My advice: if you have a sore ear, get it checked out as soon as possible and avoid what I went through.

Victoria, Canada
