Hi
, your query is a bit vague . If your sister has headache associated with earache but no pathology was detected the pain may be due to migraine. However cause in the ear and oral cavity including dental must be strictly ruled out . If she complains of noise in ear(tinnitus?) then you should visit a good audiometrist for evaluation of hearing staus & tinnitus mapping.A trial with tinnitus maskers may also be done. In order to detect migraine a detailed history of the headache including precipitating causes , aura, associated nausea vomiting etc needs to be taken.Sibelium a selective calcium antagonist often is found helpful in such cases but should always be taken under a doctors supervision.Hope i have been able to be of some help &your sister gets well soon.

I had an infected tooth extracted 6 days ago. I am still having a lot of pain but the pain is in my jaw, the tooth located next to the extraction, my ear, and a headache on that side even when moving my eye. Should I still have all this pain? Why do all these other areas hurt so badly. It is unbearable at times. I am taking antibiotics and was on painkillers but ran out so just taking motrin. Its not helping this pain at all. Thanks for your help.

I am 29 years old. I have constant ear pain in both ears , mostly right ear, dizzyness, fatigue, headache, and brain fog for three months. I was experiencing ear fullness but it went away. I am having a some tinitus in my right ear but it is very low and can only hear it when in a quiet room. I have had blood work, MRI, CT Scan, and Audiology test all have come back normal. Meniers diease, BPPV, sinus/ear infection, and tumors have been ruled out. I have been diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea but it was said that it doesnt explain my dizzyness nor the ear pain. I have had been prescribed a CPAP machine. I also had septoplasty last year and am still having nasal pain.

I have a constant thundering in my left ear, this has been going on for around 4 to 6 months now, tonight it is seriously freaking me out and I have tooth pain and ear pain with it which never happened before. I have a piercing on the little nub between the ear and the face I cant remember what that part is called but I lost the ball on the earring and did not find it so I am wondering if this could be caused by an object in my ear or if it could be more serious? It is like a beating or thundering in my ear, not a ringing sound. It does not go along with my own heart beat, it is irregular and cases the feeling of vibration on my face as well.
