It's no surprise that the constant, nagging pain caused by an ear infection can limit your ability to sleep. To make matters worse, ear infections can cause a ringing sound to appear in the ear, furthermore impeding a good night's sleep. Symptoms of ear infection can also worsen while lying down, which is highly inconvenient bearing in mind that we spend a significant portion of our time in bed or otherwise immobile. If you experience other symptoms at night, including fever and restlessness, you may have an ear infection. To help you get some sleep, consider taking over the counter pain medication and contact your doctor.
