Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the query through health care magic.
I have read it & would try to suggest way out from the problem .. to my best
The temporal pain you have could be from a number of origins.
- It can be simple sleeplessness/excessive stress ( both physical & psychological.)
-Allergic temporal sinusitis with involvement of eustachian tube causing raised pressue in ear &dizziness with pain.
-Mild raised blood pressure.
- Refractry error in eyes... affecting vision. This can be early sign of affected eye sight.
*Recognition of cause is needed for getting relief.
In this context you should get a help of your family physician first. After primary evaluation of the health he would either start treatment himself
or would refer you to an ENT or Eye doctor for an expert advise & management.
The treatment would be cause specific.
* Self care- Till then.. you can-
-Take rest/avoid stress .
-Inhale vapor if you have symptoms of cold.
- Avoid known allergens .. if any.
- Avoid straining eyes if you feel vision affection.
-Take a pill of Paracetamol after food twice a day..after food.
*Thus with expert advise & specific treatment would help you out of the problem.
I hope that answers your query. Any follow up query is welcome.
In case you don't have any... please close the query &grade the answer before you leave.
Thank you.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
