Numbness in the ear only on sitting. Cause and remedy?

My right ear is causing me issues. I describe it as numbness but I could also say that it would be pressure? Makes me want to clean out my ear. I have only noticed it when I am sitting, not lying in bed. Numbness and or cold feeling. I have not as far as I am aware had ear infections so I can t figure if that is what it is or not. Female 24 Sendentary but healthy otherwise.

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Numbness or abnormal sensations may be related to abnormal function or structure of a nerve in the area.

This is termed neuropathy.

There are different possible causes such as: (1) trauma
(2)vitamin deficiency
(5)exposure to toxins
(6)neurological disease such as MS, stroke
(7)idiopathic- cause is not known

The feeling may be temporary. You can consider monitoring it, if it continues or worsens then you should consider visiting your doctor for an evaluation.

I hope this helps
