One of my ears blocked for no apparent reason a few days ago.
We were in outback Australia at the time so I had no option but to get used to operating on only one ear.
I’d hoped changing air pressure on the flight back to New Zealand might help. It didn’t and I woke at home this morning to find the other ear had blocked as well.
I’ve made an appointment with my GP for this afternoon but the receptionist warned me that if my ears need to by syringed I’ll have to wait until Tuesday for a specialist.
My farmer sufferers from tractor drivers’ ear. I now have a very real appreciation on how that feels and am ruing the times I’ve responded in exasperation when he asks me to repeat what I’ve said again.
