I have dealt with ear infections for most of my life but I think they get worse the older I get. I have been lucky and have not had one for a few years but now I have one. I also have a couple lumps in my neck/head area and have had a headache for almost a week now. I went to the doctor and got some medication but it doesn't seem to be helping. I am hoping for some relief from the headache soon. The kids and dogs are too loud to be having a headache all the time.
