Hello, I work in scheudling for an ENT dept. I was able to run over to the clinic be seen for an ear issue today but am confused by the info I was given. My right ear is having aching pain with nearly constant shooting pain, very itchy, some dizziness this morning, has decreased hearing, pressure (feels full), I can feel pressure when I bite down, I feel something behind my ear near the end of my jaw that is more swollen than the other side. I barely slept last night b/c of the discomfort. The ENT doc I was able to use a tool to quickly look in my ear and said it didnt look horrible and he didnt see any blockage. What else could be going on that maybe he didnt see using that tool? He didnt do a full consult b/c he is a doc I schedule for and he was just looking in my ear quickly as a favor. Taking tylenol and Ibuprofen so often for the pain is bothering my stomach. Please help!View Thread
