    Head and ear pressure/pain

    Hi. This has only been happening for about a month, and I just moved to a new city where I don't have health insurance so I haven't seen anyone about it. Lately I've been feeling this pressure in my temples, and sometimes behind my eyes. At times it hurts like a sudden intense pain but then it fades. I've also had the feeling like my ear needs to pop or won't. I've had a little cold so I thought that was the issue but I'm not sick anymore. I don't want to freak myself out too much by jumping to conclusions, but I feel like there's a tiny bump on my left temple. I don't know if it's been there forever or what but I've only noticed it the last month. Should I get a CT scan?

    Thanks for the welcome. I only had this cold Labor Day weekend and on, but I've been feeling this before I got sick.

    Before getting a CAT scan, I think you should get a simple check up first. You said you had a slight cold. You could have developed a sinus infection or have fluid in your ear. Go and have a doctor look at it. Most cities have quick clinics where you can get minor problems checked out for a low fee - around $50. Look in your phone book to see if you have anything like that available. You may just need a decongestant or antibiotic.
