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.

Age 38, Female. 5' 7'', 130 lbs. Hello doctor, I am a chronic worrier and hypochondriac, and for the last couple months I am convinced I have throat cancer. Yes, I am a smoker and I tend to smoke more when I am nervous about stuff like this. Used to drink and party in my 20's but now I barely touch alcohol. It all started about 2 months ago, had this funny "ache" right below my left ear. Could barely feel it, but it was enough to make me start worrying. It's weird, but it almost seems worse when I have an empty stomach. (I also have acid reflux.) Just a couple days ago, I noticed the tonsil on the same side as the pain (left) has about 3 white dots on it, one looks kind of raised and inflamed. Then that little flap after the tonsil (right next to the uvula) has 2 tiny, tiny pimples on it, same color as the tonsil. I have no sore throat. The pain in now regular ear pain, like when I get my ear infections. I showed my throat to my Mom who is a nurse, and she said it's nothing, just infection. My tonsils are both about the same size. I talked to my Uncle who is a doctor, and he said I'm too young for throat cancer, that my voice would be hoarse if I did, and the whole thing sounds like a virus that settled in that general area. But I still don't believe anybody. Oh, and the more I get scared and concentrate on it, the pain gets INCREDIBLY worse in my ear...it starts stabbing and pinching. When I settle down and tell myself it's not cancer, the pain almost goes away. Tylenol also knocks the pain out for hours. (???) What do you think is going on? I DO still have the white dots on the tonsil and the 2 little raised bumps.... Thanks!!

Could snorting cocaine cause damage to my eustachian tube? I have had weird popping in my ear and pain occasionally after a heavy weekend of snorting drugs...this started approximately a year after using the drug on weekends. I would easily go through 2 grams in a night (about 12 hours). The odd sensation in my ear (deep in my ear) seems to be getting worse each time. I will sometimes have a very bad ear ache for 2 days after, with some loss of hearing. My doctor has looked in my ear and said everything looks fine. The most annoying part is the popping...which I can actually make happen if I breath a certain way or swallow or open my mouth (and I don t have to open it far. I would very much appreciate some comments on this. I am not looking for advice really, just want to know if this is possible.

My 10 year old daughter has had an earache for about the last 12 hours. She isn't running fever but is in quite a bit of pain in her ear. I noticed a small lump under her ear around the back of her jaw. I was going to use Similisan ear relief but was wondering if this would work?
