It is now 5am in the morning and for the third day in a row I have awoken to excruceating burning pain in my right ear. The pain is intense and it feels as though that the inside of my ear is very swollen. The pain also radiates through out the right side of my face off and on.
I was thinknig that I was having this problem due to the fact that a few day before I cleaned my ears and maybe caused some damage? And so I have been taking Tylenol and ear ache ear drops to stop the pain. The pain did stop of a few periods however it came right back.
I have no fever, just the swelling and the pain.
I am not new to this message board. Two years ago I had a very bad case of ottis media with fusion in my left ear which took over a year of treatment to clear up. Now I am beginning to think that the pain in my right ear maybe something serious like that and I do not want to go down that road again.
I wanted any advise on what this could be or sounds like it could be. This pain is just too unbearable.
Please help anybody, reply.
