Suggest remedy for ear pain

I have suffered with a pain behind my left ear I think it s called the mastoid gland on and off for 14 years I know it s this long as it started when I was pregnant. It comes and goes. I saw a consultant a few years ago and he suggested that the reason I get this pain is due to the fact that I had my tonsils removed as a child so when I get an infection this is where my weak spot is. Could you give me any further info.

ENT Specialist 's  Response

Please contact a new ENT surgeon. We need to do your examination under microscopy, an endoscopy nose, and oral examination. You need not to worry. Sometimes the enlarged styloid process can cause pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
