It's not the inside of my ear that hurts, not a regular earache. When I wear headphones or a hat that covers my ears to keep them warm, even for a short while, the outer part of my ear starts to hurt a lot. what's wrong with it?
I too get pain on my outer ear, in the pinna. It's especially bad in the night when I'm laying on my side I wake up with this awful burning pain on my ear.. Sorry I cant help you but just wanted you to know you're not alone. It must be some kind of pressure thing I think.
