Ear weirdness: Without warning Friday afternoon I started to have trouble hearing out of my left ear. I’m a little dizzy, and there’s a feeling of pressure, almost like when you have a bad cold and your ear gets clogged, but I can’t clear it. I can still hear out of it, but it sounds muffled like someone poured a lot of fluid in it. I called the doctor and he prescribed steroids (?) for the weekend, and then he’ll see me Monday morning. It hit suddenly this afternoon.

It’s the same side where they want to do an operation to fix a hole in my skull over my inner ear, but the doctor isn’t sure the two are related.

By the way, the name of my new band will be Ear Weirdness.
