Thanks for writing in.
The burning pain in the ear could either be severe pain that can originate due to an infection in the ear. If you have noticed some kind of discharge from the ear or some hearing loss. Also, it could be due to a prodrome of herpes zoster where a burning sensation in a particular region, preceded the appearance of small fluid filled rash. This would be likely if you have suffered from chicken pox before.
I would suggest you see an ENT specialist so that an infection can be reasonably ruled out.
Hope this helps.

hi bridget
welcome to HCM

burning sensation of your EAR which has increased to include you eyes is very nonspecific, thats the reason the physicians are not able to come to a conclusion
pl be more specific so that we can help you out.
consult an ENT surgeon so that he can rule out the ear related cause
