Welcome in H.C.M.
I have gone through your query regarding ear pain
and pressure which is not responding to antibiotics. Your C.T.Scan report is normal.
You had already been examined by your ENT doctor, rheumatologist
and your family doctor but no definite solution came out.
Considering your symptoms I would like to say that pain in the ear some times felt though the disease basically lies at other places some of these are-
1- Teeth- Caries of last molars usualy give rise to pain in ear.
2- Tongue- Pathologies at the base of tongue also give rise to pain in ear.
3- Tonsils- Acute pathology of tonsils is also well known for referred otalgia
4- Eustachian tube- Malfunction of eustachian tube is also responsible for giving pain to ear.
5- Jaw joint- Arthritis
of jaw joint is also causes referred otalgia.
6- Neuralgic pain- Glossopharyngeal neralgia also some times involves ear.
Therefore in your case a thorough examination is necessary to rule out above one by one to diagnose the real pathology and that may be accordingly manage.
