I had outer ear pain all day.....HAD ....after reading the post and suggestion to lightly tug on the ear in different directions ...it almost instantly alleviated the .....severe pain. Then I thought to myself how did I perhaps "dislocate the cartilage today?? then it dawned on my I had a bandana on and some of the material was behind my ear AND I had my sunglasses on. that extra pressure or thickness of the bandana must have dislocated the cartilage leading to pressure applied to some sort of neuro vascular structure..
Btw when the pain was alleviated it felt like a sleeping limb having sensation returning.View Thread
