I have excruciating pain in my left ear. At the ER the dr told me i have a hard wall of wax built up so he cant even tell if I have an infection. I have holes in both my ear drums so I can't use drops to flush it. He gave me augmentin and vicodin until I can see an ear nose and throat specialist. That was 2 days ago and the pain is just as intense. This morning I woke up with a lump in my neck (opposite side). It doesn't hurt to swallow. It just hurts in general. Any ideas???
