Pain in ears and back of head, worsens while playing hockey. What is this pain ?

hi I have been experiencing pain in my ears and at the back of my head, my ears can feel muffled at times and the pain in my head is mainly at the soft spot in the back. The pain gets worse when im playing hockey. Ive been having these pains for about 2weeks. Im 22 female, take part in regular exercise, may have asthma taking inhalers, was diagnosed with chostochondritis 3years ago. Any idea what this pain in my head and ears could be?

hello and welcome to HCM,

Any pain of the ear which does not respond to routine pain killers and associated with muffling or ear block must definitely be examined by an ENT so that more serious lesions can be ruled out. In most of the cases it will just be a mild infection which can be effectively treated but please do not take any chance.

Also since you also have pain in the head then you need to get evaluated to rule out sinusitis (through endoscopy and CT PNS)

take care and get well soon
