Icepick in ear....

I called my GP yesterday and asked them to refer me to an ENT specialist but never heard back from them.  When I got up this morning I decided I HAD to get out of this house.  Since both the cupboard and refrigerator were bare, I ventured out to Kroger's to get some groceries. To say I was exhausted when I got home is putting it mildly but I was glad I went. I even got a roast and put it in our new crock pot for dinner. I drove the back roads and was very careful but really don't know that I should be
driving that much until we can get this problem with my ear taken care of.  I try to not take too many Advil but about three hours ago, my ear pain jumped exponentially to the nth degree. Of course this was a few hours after the ENT specialist called and the first appointment they can give me is September 12th! What!!!  I took it and she encouraged me to call the rest of this week every day to see if they have a cancellation.  I took 3 Advil's two hours ago and it is still hurting worse than it has so far.  It actually feels like an icepick has been jabbed into my ear.  I don't know if I will end up in the ER tonight or not but don't think I'll be waiting around until September 12th to see someone.  I may call my GP again tomorrow to see if he can look at it again.  I know - crazy isn't it?  I have always felt so sorry for children with ear infections/pain but had no idea how bad it can get.  Have got to get this taken care of - the new Service Year starts Thursday!  I know - I'll eat some Fudgesicles - that should ease it off some.  Sorry to be whining so much but man - this is getting bad.

    Can they not give you a different medication?
