Hi, I am a medical student. In medical terms, it is an acute peripheral facial neuropathy that is associated with erythematous vesicular rash of the skin of the ear canal, auricle and/or mucous membrane of the oropharynx.

On the result of a MRI , under the section called Impression , the following was typed Curvilinear enhancement within the right 7th nerve intracanicular component as well as horizontal segment and genu, which is a nonspecific finding and certainly may be inflammatory in nature but follow up MRI in 6-12 months is recommended to assess for resolution of this finding. Multiple punctate foci of chronic microvascular ischemia throughout the centrum semiovate bilaterally. I had this MRI as a result of a diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome . That was on May 22. I am still having trouble with vertigo and balance disorder .

I am 15 and female. I ve had shingled for about a month now and the pain had reduced slightly but recently, especially today, it s been extremely painful and I started to experience a very painful earache and stabbing pains in my head. I also have unusual indentations or bumps on the front part of my tongue which I ve had since I was diagnosed with shingles. I also have a weird spot/blister kind of thing on the inside of the aching ear which is on the side of my shingled rash (lower right side of back). I m wondering if this could possibly be Ramsay Hunt Syndrome...?

I have a constant thundering in my left ear, this has been going on for around 4 to 6 months now, tonight it is seriously freaking me out and I have tooth pain and ear pain with it which never happened before. I have a piercing on the little nub between the ear and the face I cant remember what that part is called but I lost the ball on the earring and did not find it so I am wondering if this could be caused by an object in my ear or if it could be more serious? It is like a beating or thundering in my ear, not a ringing sound. It does not go along with my own heart beat, it is irregular and cases the feeling of vibration on my face as well.
