I have UTI and the doctor prescribed amikocin intramascular injections. I took the first injection two days ago but wen i woke up the next day i felt my throat sore and i wasn't feeling well, so, i read about amikacin and when i read about the deafness it causes i got freaked out and i feel like it might make me go deaf. I only took one injection of it then i asked my doctor to change it because i wasn't comfortable taking it. Now, im worried and sometimes i feel my ears ringing and other times i just feel like im imagining it. Could i go deaf soon because of that single injection of amikocin?

I kinda doubt that the one shot is going to make you go deaf. Why didn't they give you cipro or macrodantin pill for the UTI, did you have a major infection? The ringing in your ears can be from all kinds of things, it is called tinnuitis. Medication, allergies, ear or sinus infections can cause it. Some people just have it permanently, I always have had it. If you see an ear nose and throat doctor, they may be able to make you more comfortable about the shot you were given.
