Doctor :   Hi
User :   hi
User :   I have a pain in my left ear and and burning pain on the top of my head into my left eye- like a pressure pain. The pain on the top of my head is like a narrow band of burning pain that also goes to the back of my head on the left side. My left ear also has a slight ring to it. I also have pain in my forehead just above my left Eye. I was seen by a MD last Wednesday and was told that I have step with tonsilitis a but my ears are very clear. I am on 4 prednisone a day 10mg and amoxicillin 850 mg twice a day. i called the doc back about these symptoms that I still have and he said That maybe to come back in. I have had these pain for about 3 weeks now. I am worried what do you think it is?
