Re: Severe ear pain
Welcome to HealthBoards.
Since you posted on the TMJ board, are you thinking that your ear pain could be related to TMJD? It can be a symptom, it was in my case. If so, antibiotics and bloodwork won't show anything for that.
If you think you are having a physical problem or infection of your ear and your current treatments aren't working, you might need to seek out an ENT.
As for your bloodwork, it can show if you have inflammation in your body. I can't help you with your question on the temple. TMJD can cause facial muscle spasms though that can radiate up the side of the face and cause headaches though. There is a "sticky" post at the top of this TMJ board that gives a whole range of potential TMJ symptoms.
I hope you are feeling better.
