Tue, Jan 1 7:05pm · extreme outer ear pain in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I had a lot of pain in the cartlidge of my outer ear and ear lobe for several weeks. The doctor tried antibiotics and then suggested an ENT when that didn't work. In the meantime, I went to the chiropractor for another problem and after the treatment the ear pain was totally gone and has never returned.
Perhaps that might help you.

I have cataracts growing very slowly and my vision has improved somewhat. My eye doctor says this is characteristic of cataracts. As they mature the shape of the eye changes a little causing an improvement before they get worse. My improvement has been for a couple of years so it is a slow process at least for me.

Dec 28, 2018 · Vivaer nasal valve remodeling and Empty Nose Syndrome? in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

In 2012 I had turbinates removed and or reduced as well as a deviated septum repaired, opening to the left nostril enlarged as it had collapse, and openings into the sinus enlarged.
After surgery, it was necessary to go back in to remove some scar tissue that was causing some blockage.
I still have congestion in mostly the right sinus which is where the problem was before. I breath better but not terrifically.
My thought is perhaps there is some scar tissue causing some blockage.

Dec 27, 2018 · Tests for blood cancer ...the bills!! in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I have Medicare and have HealthNet as my secondary. My lab copays are $12. Sometimes ther is a copay for the lab work and a copay for having the blood drawn.
Also, sometimes the first of the year bills might be higher in order to meet the yearly deduction.
Talk to your secondary insurance. You might not have their best policy for your situation.
