Ear infection spread to brain
« on: April 20, 2014, 04:11:15 PM »
 :spineyes: second thread of the day. I googled you guys. I've had this ear problem going on since January, it's almost May. I read that severe ear infections can spread to your brain and now I'm freaking out. When will this end.

if your ear infection had spread to your brain, there would be no mistaking it - you would be VERY ill and everyone around you would know it. i've had this same fear as well when it comes to sinus infections spreading to the brain but if that were truly the case, we wouldn't be hanging out on this forum, we'd be in the hospital with unmistakable, extremely obvious symptoms of being sick.

if it helps at all, i've had chronic sinusitis for almost a year, and i'm still alive and kicking, no brain infection! you're gonna be just fine.

I once thought I was pregnant even though I've never had sex with a guy.  I thought I did something in my sleep.

...so no, I think I win that title! 

Seriously, though, like the other poster said, don't worry about it.  Sinus problems are common and by and large nothing more than annoying.
