Last night I put a extremely diluted amount of tea tree oil on a Q-tip and used it in my ears. Oh my gosh...the pain!
Anyway, I woke up several times during the night with tingling and pain in a circle around my ears several inches out like big ear muffs, pain in my throat, sinuses, neck and a migraine. I seemed to have a hang over like I have never felt before today.
I had read you shouldn't put tea tree oil in your ears but from the research I had read it seemed the people who had reactions from this put non-diluted tree tea oil in their ears for several years and then had hearing problems. I can hear just fine. Though my ears feel a little numb.
The scariest part of this whole things is my eye seems to have had a blood vessel(s) break in it and now my left eye where most of the pain radiating from my left ear was is now a pool of blood on the left side of my eye and above my pupil. It looks really gross but does not hurt at all.
My question is: Is this normal? Should I be concerned? I do not want to go to the doctor unless it could be an emergency!
I have suffered from water in my ears since I was under the age of 10 (I am now 39) and recently realized I probably of some sort of candida in my ears. When I would think I had an ear infection, the doctors would tell me I had water in my ears but my ear was not infected and I would have to wait it out and would prescribe something for the pain...again.
I have treating myself for Candidiasis for a little of month. I suffered from the die off effect for about 3 -4 weeks and haven't had too much of a reaction for 2 weeks until today. I have been using a couple off drops of tea tree oil in a soaking bath with baking soda for over a weeks.
In the past, most doctors tell me my symptoms are all in my head but in the past 2 years I have been diagnosed with pneumonia, cholestasis, bronchitis, migraines, anxiety, depression, eczema, obesity, low blood pressure, appendicitis (which they have removed), gestational diabetes, while I was pregnant I was told my organs were shutting down one by one, my anemia was 6.9 before my c-section, I did have a blood transfusion which I then had an allergic reactions to and I looked like a bowling pin from the swelling and then had my incision open enough to have water and blood squirt out of my like a water balloon with a pin sized whole in it for the next 2 weeks soak a diaper I had wrapped around my incision in about an hour (It was incredibly gross), oh the list goes on and on...
I have been taking the following vitamins and supplements: garlic, olive tree oil, grape seed oil, acidophilus, apple cider vinegar, and a multi vitamin from GNC. Also, taking the baths with baking soda and tea tree oil nightly.
