Soreness in front of ear, low grade fever, flu like headache, suggestion of TMJ. Right?
I have a soreness just in front of my left ear. It started about the same time I got a low-grade fever, and a flu-like headache . I went to my head/ neck surgeon, who looked in my ear canal and saw nothing but a slight reddening - no swelling of the ear canal. She suggested TMJ , which doesn t seem correct to me. It hurts to touch the tragus, or pull slightly on my ear lobe.
