numbness in my head and ear

I noticed my right ear feeling numb for quite awhile. Two days ago I started getting sharp pains in my head just below my right ear. The pain was very sharp and would come and go. Today I did not get any pains but noticed my head feels numb behind my ear where the pains were.

Re: numbness in my head and ear

hi there....I'd get that checked out from an Md if the numbness stays.My friend's daughter woke up one day and her right side of her head and face was numb....turns out she has MS.At first the dr. thought she had Bell's Palsy,but the medicatin didn't help her.So then they did a brain MRI and she had three lesions.So if the numbness lasts for more than 24 hours you need to see a dr. It could be one of several things,but I wouldn't let it go on without getting a drs. opinion.

Hope everything goes well for you.Take Care~Scout
