I haven't had an earache in so long, I have no idea what to do for it. Do I sleep on that side (my usual side) or roll over?
My first effort at online research basically said to take to aspirins and don't call anyone until morning.
It really does hurt. I didn't fall. I didn't bash it against anything, and no one else bashed anything against me.
I'm tempted to see if chocolate chip cookies (taken internally, not in the ear) will help, but I'm always tempted to take chocolate cookies internally, so that is more a reflex action than an intelligent idea.
Would it be just my imagination that thinks the earache is getting in to my throat? Are sore throats and earaches related?
I'm supposed to be writing a poem (a romantic chanson about liederhosen as far as I can figure out from Kerry's prompt) for Real Toads.
But I can't.
So I looked up ears again. Here are some British Columbia mountains, which I have seen often, they are twin peaks called Golden Ears, and, while lovely, don't make me feel any better.
Rabbit ears always remind me of early television.
My ears still hurt, as does my throat and my jaw. I looked up those three things together and got TMJ, which doesn't stand for Throat My Jaw, but Tempromandibular Joint something-or-other. Just as I was going to start posting pictures of interesting human ears.
Even though it's a sultry summer night, perhaps I'll follow the TMJ advice a bit: heat and pain killers, not too much of either one.
Can't hurt. Might help.
And you can call me in the morning.
