I just came from the doctor s office. I have been having extremely hurtful ear aches. He examined me and said that everything was normal. (Before going to the doctor, I even went to my dentist and he took complete x-rays of all my teeth to be sure that they were not the cause.) I am a 20 year cancer survivor, so whenever the ENT doctor wanted to use a lighted instrument to go up inside my nose I asked him what was this procedure for. He said that he was looking for any tumors that could be causing this pain. I was so nervous that the thought of that instrument with a 12 inch flex tube, was going to be inserted into my nose that I began to cry. Finally he said that he would write a Rx for Neurontin. That I am to take the medicine and come back in 2 weeks. He said that it could be caused by neuropathy. Is that a true diagnosis for a real bad ear ache?
