Ear itching, pain on left side of face. Taking acid reflux medicine. What is wrong?

my ear seemed to be itching on the inside and then a while later i think i must ve moved my head or did a little yawn and a severe pain struck at the left side of my face i felt it more on the inside of my ear and my jaw area. As the pain started to dull in the next minute i started to feel a lump on the left side of my throat when i swallowed. I turn my head to the right and pain hits, then i look up and the pain hits again. holding my head down helps. This just happened 30 minutes ago. I dont know if this is important but I also have been on medication for acid reflux because i dont burp so it s for my digestive system i ve been taking it for maybe a week or two. It was such a random pain and i never felt anything like it, what s wrong? is it an infection because i have been coughing a lot lately when i breathe in i instantly cough, I also have asthma and i am allergic to all nuts . I took a tylenol and then one of my acid reflux pils hours before this hapened. Please Help .

Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Pain on left side of face can be due to dislocation or inflammation of jaws.

Avoid mouth opening too widely.

Jaws has to be i m m obilised for a while.

Use inter maxillary fixation techniques to s ta bi l i s e jaws.

Complete course of antibiotics as well as analgesics with muscle relaxants has to be administered.

Hope this helps.
