| | Shooting pain in ear canal
I have an unusual pain in my ear, it becomes unbearable at times. I have had it for about a week, I thought it would go away in time but it has gotten worse. Now the pain has sunk it's way into the right hand side of my face and jaw near the Ear.
As I have never been diagnosed with TMJ when seen by a doctor, I am confused as to what I blame the severe pain on. It stops me from wanting to eat at times as the pain effects my jaw and causes problems with chewing or even talking at times. I recently got a stretcher for my ear but the pain was still there before I got it.
I have no idea what is going on with my ear but the obvious popping noises i hear seem to drive me insane, and the pain when I try to clean my ears doesn't get much better. I am looking for advice or maybe even someone with the same symptoms, as I have never had this before and I feel worried as to what it might be.
