Patient :I went to the ER on Saturday with an asthma attack after having been sick for 3 days. The doctor said it was bronchitis and prescribed a z-pack and prednisone. On Sunday I got this intense pain out of nowhere in my left ear. It felt like something ruptured and a yellowish fluid leaked out. It is now Tuesday and I have an intense pain in my right ear. I called my family doctor but the earliest appointment they have is June 22nd. Do I need to be seen sooner?
