ear infection


so earlier this year i had this Sinus infection - no riding

now i have severe ear ache. i noticed earlier this week i struggled to keep the bike riding straight. struggled through turns. my arms grew tired so quickly. i thought it was tire pressure but now i thing my balance is way of as my nose is blocked and my right ear has a pulsing pain.

i use ear plug, reusable, and im concerned about an infection because of this.

if your that concerned. get to the doctor my dude, Just for the piece of mind. 15 bucks is a lot cheaper then a hospital visit and repair bill on the bike.

An ear infection can easily throw off balance, as the sensory neurons in the inner ear can affect a person's proprioception (equilibrium > no spell check needed).

This happened to me this summer, from using reusable plugs. I did feel disoriented sometimes and my ear would hurt. I was prescribed fluticasone proprionate (the stuff that is used for asthma or stuffy noses), as it cleared the infection and drained the eustachian tubes in my ear. I think the popular name of that product is Flonase, but I was prescribed the generic (and more powerful) stuff.

I don't use the reusable plugs more than 3 times anymore... I just get the Hearos plugs from Cycle Gear- $5 for like a pack of 10 pairs.

So, I agree with 600rr Rider, I would go to the Doctor; as if it is an infection, it will most likely get worse without medication...
