What causes pain,pressure and soreness in ear and throat?

I ve been having a horrible pressure in my ears and throat for months which has, in the past three weeks, turned into pain and soreness. It is a constant thing and is only dimmed by taking Ativan. After an examination, my ENT suggested TMJ and put me on muscle relaxants. They did not help at all. He then took a look into my throat with a small scope and said that the very bottom of my throat looked red and puffy; he put me on acid blockers. First proposed, then nexium. They did not help either. He then suggested a gastro dr. I will be going to have an upper endoscopy in two weeks. The pain is fairly bad now, and oddly enough, only Ativan helps. Any ideas. I do have hpv, in case that s important.

Hello,

It may be upper respiratory tract infection with eustachian tube block or middle ear infection. It may be acid reflux or esophagitis or globus pain condition. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Avoid spicy food and alcohol, avoid cool drinks and ice creams. Use syrp Mucaine gel two teaspoons thrice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult with your gastroenterologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
