Are your worms scattered? Do u feel them moving in other places? The ones in my ears are still there, iam currently doing mattk3's protocol, my ear has healed a little bit on its own. The tinutitus stopped. If it is indeed a worm in your ear and scattered it will probably take more than DE to cure, but DE is a start. Most likely you had a reaction to Wormwood ingredient in the herbs, there are side effects to most all meds. U may want to chew on papaya enzyme tabs with the DE, DE can make u constipated.
