ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hello, thank you for communicating with us for your problem. As per the brief history you have given us it apparently looks like you may be having glosopharyngeal neuralgia which mimicks pain in the region and at times radiating to the ear .
I would suggest you to consult the E.N.T Specialist as on examination the findings may be different and line of treatment may have to be changed.
Please don’t hesitate to consult and ask for any more queries.
With best wishes for a speedy cure
