Re: headache/earache/&soret throat...left side only
I am having VERY similar problems right now. It started about 2 weeks ago when I thought I had some popcorn stuck in my throat. I swallowed and poked around, but there was nothing in there. The feeling of something in my throat was only on the left side. It persisted and turned into an inner ear ache, tenderness near my jaw joint (just behind my ear where you feel something sour), and a raging headache only on the left side. Even my head was sensitive to touch! I took some pain meds thinking it was the beginning of a sinus infection, slept on my other side and it eventually diminished. Now 2 weeks later, the feeling is STILL in my throat and my ear still aches and I have faint headaches coming and going. Last night, I even looked closely into my throat and found an open slit where my tonsils used to be. It seems this is exactly where the tenderness in my throat lies. And it's only on my left side. I have no wisdom teeth, all of my teeth and gums are in good health. What could this be? Did you ever find out?? I am always congested (i blame that on my allergies, usually). But this is really weirding me out and I'm not sure WHICH doctor to go to.
