Pressure in ear, felt down my jawline like a sore muscle?

I have been having pressure behind the ear that seems to get worse whenever I exert too much energy. It is impossible for me to exercise and it makes concentrating very hard. Whats also weird is that I have been having pressure headaches from the moment I wake up as well. There is also a sense of tension going down one side of my face, such as a sore muscle or a nerve that isnt working properly. My doctor noticed that when I smile or open my mouth it tends to go to one side as if one of the nerves was not working properly. Can someone please help me? I don't know whats going on and am really scared this is permanent.

Re: Pressure in ear, felt down my jawline like a sore muscle?

what doctor did you see that determined your smile/mouth differences.

Has the doctor checked your blood pressure?

Have you seen a neurologist? probably the first specialist your doc should send you to for an evaluation.

My smile is crooked as well as other people I know. My smile crookedness is inherited....and I tend to use one side of my face more to smile/speak/create expressions, etc.

I can relate to the nerve pain you're experiencing, however...it's solely from impingement in my neck. It's exacerbated when I'm distressed or anxious (which would probably increase my blood pressure).

Have you had a sinus infection as of late? another possibility.

Have you injured your neck in the past...strain, weird sleeping, etc?

Re: Pressure in ear, felt down my jawline like a sore muscle?

no there was no neck injury. I just feel this constant headache and ear pain its driving me crazy. I wake up in the morning with a full head and pressure headache and don't even feel refreshed. I don't even know what day of the week it is anymore. Its hard for me to concentrate in school and I am scared. The only thing I can think of that may have caused is that I had my ear tubes removed three weeks after I had a Myringotomy back in October, which is when this pain started. Is it possible that it may be a pulled muscle or something from the ear tube removal? It was done in office. Please help me!!!
