Dull sharp stinging pain while breathing in left nostril, ear pain. Reasons ?

I have a dull sharp stinging pain while breathing in or exhaling deeply in my left nostril . They dull pain extends from my left nostril to my left ear. The ache in my ear has become more pronounced over the past couple of days, but the pain in general extends from left nostril to left ear. I also feel a bit of pain extending to my left jaw (lower) and down towards my collar bone. This has been going on for the past 2 weeks. Weirdly enough, the pain comes and goes throughout the day, but is most pronounced at night. No drainage, or cold/ sinus symptoms other than the ones described above. I feel great otherwise. Tried sinus relief pills with no results.

Hello

Welcome in H.C.M. for query.

I read your query, after considering all facts and symptoms it appears as infective pain in nose and throat and reaching up to ear via eustachian tube.

To find out the exact pathology and site of lesion you should do-

1- C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses.

2- Culture & sensitivity of throat swab.

3- Blood - CBC, ESR, blood sugar ( F & PP).

By these investigation and a thorough examination one may reach to a final diagnosis that may be accordingly manage.

Regards.
