Ear Ache and Pain in Mouth

I went to the doctor yesturday because of a really bad ear ache. She took a look in my ear and said there was a lot of fluid built up. She understood why I am in so much pain. I know that can be felt in the upper teeth, but I am having the same pressure in my lower teeth. It really only hurts when my ear starts throbbing. Can all that fluid also be causing the pressure in my lower teeth and gums?

Thanks
KDD

Re: Ear Ache and Pain in Mouth

Hello, KDD . . . it has been my personal experience that sinus pressure causes pain in upper teeth, and ear and tonsil pressure causes pain in lower teeth, especially molars. The reverse can be true, also. If you have cavities and/or abscesses, the pain can go to the sinuses, ears and tonsils.

I have found that after three or four days on antibiotics for sinus infection, the pain in the teeth usually goes away. If you still have problems when your antibiotics are done, you should let your doctor know.

Best of luck and let us know how it goes!

Re: Ear Ache and Pain in Mouth

Lindaru is right. The pressure can go from the top down around to your bottom teeth and make your entire mouth hurt like th dickens. Especially the back molars. It should clear up after a few days on antibiotics or steriods. Keep on them and if they don't work be sure to let your doctor know....

Re: Ear Ache and Pain in Mouth

It's most likely otitis media - just an ear infection/ear ache on the other side of the ear drum. Did she give you antibiotics? It's interesting, one of the nerves that supplies your ear also innervates parts of your mouth, and your sense of taste. That's why people tend to lose sense of taste when they get a sinus/ear infection.

Re: Ear Ache and Pain in Mouth

Yeah I got antibiotics. I have had them since Monday and they don't really seem to be helping with the ear pain. My sinuses are starting to get better, but the ear is not.

I have a feeling that storm we had on Tuesday did not help. We lost power for a few days and it was really cold.

Thanks everyone
KDD
