Hi,

Simply having a perforation of ear drum does not cause so much pain in ear and headache. The most probable causes have to be found out and treated. I would advise you to consult another ENT surgeon senior and experience in ear problems after consulting the family and friends.
* Insist on complete ENT examination
* CT scan the ears, sinuses and nose, this gives a better understanding
* Stop old medicines that are causing you problems
* Audiometry
* Relevant tests of blood like CBC, sugar for diabetes and any other as indicated.

All these will give a proper diagnosis and cause of your symptoms. Once a cause is found a proper medical management and surgery if indicated should help you the best.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
