Headache when wearing glasses, ear pain. What is wrong?

Hi, I ve been wearing glasses for over 20 years and I ve never had this problem. I m getting headaches every time I wear my glasses. And it starts with a throbbing pain behind my ears then I get a horrible headache. I thought that maybe it was the pressure from the glasses behind my ear. I have 3 pairs of glasses and they feel loose behind the ear but I still went ahead and had them stretch out where I bought them. They put them under a heating machine and stretch out the part that goes behind the ear. Even after that I still have the same problem. It s a horrible throbbing pain. And one of those pairs that I have, I ve had for 2 years and it never gave me this problem. Now all of a sudden I m getting these headaches. I need to figure out what is wrong because I can t see without my glasses. Thanks, Sue

Welcome in H.C.M.

I read your query regarding pain in ear after wearing glasses, and this pain is behind the ears.

Though for cofirmation clinical examination is must but most likely you are having some dermatitis behind your ears due to chronic irritation by frame of glasses.

to treat it avoid glasses for sometimes and use antiseptic cream having steroides for some times.
