For the last 3 days I have been deaf in one ear and barely able to hear in the other. It all started this past Sunday when I got a fresh retightening. I had really needed to wash my hair after this cycle between now and the last. It itched a lot. So when it was finally time to get my hair redone I wanted to take my time and wash my hair thoroughly. I probably shampooed my hair 5 or 6 times between rinsing. Here is where the problem originated. I got some water in ears, which normally is no big deal. However this time was different. The water would not drain out of my ear. I figured it was not a big deal and would be gone by the morning. I woke up completely deaf in one ear, with a headache, and partially deaf in the other. This went on for three days. It got annoying then worrisome then very concerning to me. I was wondering if I had a medical issue on my hands only for the third day to show signs of some relief. My ears popped. My deafness was going away, finally. My days of walking underwater were numbered! I was relieved no matter how impatient I sound. Though I will admit, I was getting good at reading lips and listening with the good ear.
