Therefore, after my research, I'm thinking it might not have anything to do with ear/nose/throat. It might be the damned prescriptions causing my issue. So, against my better judgement, I'm going to stop taking those medicines for a few days, and see if anything changes.
I've got to do SOMETHING. This soup and liquid diet is making me lose weight AND strength, and according to the person I talked to on the phone there the other day, it might be another freggin' MONTH before I get an appointment!
