Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have ear ache which is sharp in nature which can occur due to accumulation of ear wax to more serious acoustic neuroma like condition . If your symptoms are not relieved by treatment prescribed by your doctor and the episodes of earache are getting frequent then you should again consult. octor may prescribe drug like eperisone , muscle relaxant and sedatives. Maintain hygiene and avoid pricking it with sharp object. Doctor may order certain test like audiometery , CT scan ,MRI , low and high pitched ringing to rule out conditions like hearing loss , exposure to loud noises , earwax build-up , middle ear infection. Doctor may treat it according to the diagnosis , may prescribe medicine antibiotics.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
