pain and pressure in ear
Hello all, i have had pain, pressure and loss of hearing in my left ear for several months. seen ENT specialist who organised MRI scan, noises also exaggerated no sickness, very little dizziness, pain also into left cheek - wondered if anyone experienced anything like this before. awaiting mri results.

Re: pain and pressure in ear
I, too have had the same symptoms since February (now end of May). I have an MRI in 1 1/2 weeks. My diagnoses to this point have been: allergies, ear infection (although no redness or fluid), TMD, GERD and now perimenopause. I had to suggest an MRI to my ENT and primary Dr because none of the meds for the above diagnoses have helped.

I am anxious for the MRI and hope it rules stuff out. If it does, I am leaning toward the TMD thing now and am finding help from the boards, along with an orthodontist who is referring me to a specialist to make a splint for my mouth.

How did your MRI turn out? I'm interested in your story. I, too, have posted with 0 replies. Kind of disheartening. I think we have similar stories. Good luck to you!
