Too much

The pain in my ear got to be too much today, and I’ve come home early. Strangely, the pain went away for the journey home! I guess the cooling effect of the wind (I cycled home), coupled with the re-distribution of blood around my body made the swelling go down. I could also hear better once I had set off. I realised that it had been almost closed up in the office. Now I’m back home it’s starting to swell again and the pain is coming back.
It’s very odd. I’m not normally a sickly person, I try not to let anything stop me doing what I want to do. But this constant pressure along with the sudden sharp pain, and the almost constant noise have been quite irritating, and have made it hard to concentrate.
Ho hum, back to the doctor in the morning.
