Ear unhappiness

slated in moments at 4:11 pm

The pain was clear on Sunday (probably something to do with water skiing on Saturday).. it’s Tuesday now… My right ear has been hurting… it’s internal, but around the ear hurts too.. sleeping on it hurts, not doing anything to it really hurts sometimes.. There’s some sort of blockage inside, but I’ve never for the life of me been able to clear my ears by blowing with my nose held closed.. and even if I could, it feels like I would rupture something (that I don’t want to rupture) if I did succeed… Tried dropping a bit of alcohol in it per coworker’s suggestion just now.. That doesn’t seem to have helped…
Looked up online and the symptoms suggest that I have “swimmer’s ear”.. Which, very very annoyingly, appears to be treatable only by a doctor. What the hell. Seriously? I can’t do anything from home for a stupid and annoying earache? ::very displeased:: The pain is cutting into my sleep now. And generally weird and uncomfortable feeling. No itchiness at all, but definitely pain and discomfort.

Further research.. possible remedies I’ll try at home:
