dear user


thanks for contact HCM


this pain you feel refer mostly to have ear infection that cause that right ear tightness......bacterial infection some times causes otitis media with effusion that related to symptoms you have......if you have mild fever or fatigue this confirm bacterial infection.........you should see ear doctor to see you and examine with otoscope...you may need tylenol and amoxicillin for treatment of suspected ear infection but simply you need not to worry about these symptoms as it is dimple and we see these cases alot in our clininc


hope that helps you
