Ear, Nose and Throat

I've been battling a pretty severe ear infection for the last three weeks. My doctors finally sent me to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. He's been treating my infection, but says that I have developed allergies and that I need to start treating them so that this doesn't happen again. I've always heard that if you live in this valley long enough, you will eventually develop allergies because the air is so bad. I guess I'm a testament to that theory.

He tells me the infection is going away, but there is still some pressure. I have to go back in 2 weeks for a hearing test to see if there has been some nerve damage. I told him that I really didn't mind the hearing loss considering some of the crap I have to listen to on a regular basis. (Kidding.)
