The pain is constant and horrible in nature. I have been on every drug for the condition with little or no effect. I am currently on Ms Contin and MSIR, which helps a little bit. For your sake I hope that this is not what is wrong with you. gOOD LUCK WITH YOUR CONDITION
I realize this is an old post, but I wanted to make a suggestion to you. Another disease that resembles your symptom (severe ear pain) is called Ernest Syndrome/Eagles Syndrome. Please look this up and get checked out for it. The issue with all of these facial pain dysfuctions is that they carry similar symptoms but have different root causes, some can be cured or atleast better managed. I urge you to check this out. The main symptom of patients with this disease is chronic, severe ear pain. Good luck to you and I hope this message finds you well.
