Ringing in ear, localized headache, soreness in jaws, tongue numbness. Treatment necessary?

HI there. I woke up to a ringing in my right ear as well as a localized headache on the same side. My jaw and tounge are also sore. My toungue actually feels numb on the right side. I m thinking I may have an ear infection or damaged drum. Is this something that will go away or should I be going to a hospital. Thanks Rich

Thanks for writing to us.

I have read your concern.

Have you got your wisdom tooth erupted or is it still impacted?

The symptoms mentioned are most likely to that of impacted wisdom tooth which overlies an inflammed flap.

I would suggest you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done by a dentist.

The impacted tooth has to be either extracted or retained depending on the space available for tooth eruption.

To prevent underlying infection,antibiotics-analgesics has to be administered.

Hope this helps.
