Re: Sudden Onset Ear and Throat Pain
I just got over something like that. It's a virus. I ended up with a sinus infection, first on one side then on the other and then back to the first side.
Try sucking on zinc losenges and Dequadin medicated throat losenges (antibacterial/antifungal)
Have you checked out your throat? What's it look like?
Tylenol worked for the pain. Whenever I first get something like that I tend to increase Vitamin C, take extra multi vitamins, take 10,000 Betacarotene twice a day, as well as Allegra and sudafed. I hit it from all directions....and continue taking it all except the Allegra if it's caught me :-(
Drink enough fluids.
If you have pain on the outside of your face and into your jaw, it could be an attack of the Herpes virus. I have had that along my gums. Very painful. Tylenol works great, as well as a warmed microwave bag.
There's also a product that you can spray into the back of your throat to numb the pain. It's worth a shot if it gives you relief.
It's a bug of some kind you've picked up. If you get worse....and your symptoms show secondary infection of your sinuses or chest..see a doctor.
Hope it doesn't last long. Keep us posted,
It's all a matter of perspective!
