Posted on Tue, 18 Oct 2016
Question: For almost 2 months I have some mild pain under or behind the left ear.
This pain remained for 30 or 60 minutes, and it appears during cough or cold.
And it seems ear drum is popping in and popping out sometimes when breathing deeply.
Please suggest what should I do for this.
