    Post HELP FULL EARS AND FACAIL PAIN

    cAN ANYONE OUT THERE HELP PLEASE???
    OR CAN ANYONE RELATE TO THESE SYMPTOMS THEY ARE DRIVING ME MAD

    CHEEK AREA REALLY TIGHT AND MASK LIKE AND FEEL AS IF ITS CRUMBLING INSIDE.

    SIDES OF NOSE GET REALLY PAINED AND SOMETIMES IT FEELS ARE IF YOU HAVE JUST HAD A JAG AT DENTIST AND ITS AT THE STAGE OF WARING OFF.

    BELOW EARS BLOCKED BELOW LOB ESPECIALLY RIGHT SIDE - EAR POPS/CLICKS NOW AND AGAIN

    BLOCKED FEELING BESIDE RIGHT NOSTRIL JUST ABOVE GUM AREA, FEELS AS IF MUCOS IS TRYING TO PUSH THROUGH A SMALL HOLE INTO MOUTH CAN SUCK STUFF INTO MOUTH SOMETIMES. IF I PULL NOSTRIL IT SEEMS TO REALESE STUFF WHICH I FEEL COMES INTO MY MOUTH

    ALSO FEEL AS IF THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY THROAT HAS STUFF STUCK TO IT AND THIS CAN MAKE ME BURP.

    SOMETIMES FEEL AS IF THE SIDE OF MY MOUTH IS SWOLLEN AND TOUCHING MY TEETH.

    RIGHT SIDE OF MY FACE BURNS AND CHEEKS ARE VERY RED. AND INSIDE EAR GETS REALLY HOT. ALSO NEED TO HAVE RIGHT EAR SYRINGED OFTEN. CHEEK AREA CAN BE VERY PUFFY

    CAN GET SHARP PAIN IN RIGHT EAR THAT CAN MAKE ME JUST STOP IN MY TRACKS AND OCCASIONALLY ABOVE RIGHT EYE.

    NOSE GET REALLY SORE, BUT CAN'T SAY IT SEEMS BLOCKED AS I BREATH OK. ALTHOUGH WHEN I DO BLOW MY NOSE ANYTHING THAT COMES DOWN COMES DOWN THE LEFT NOSTRIL.

    NOSE NEVER REALLY RUNS MUCH, VERY OCCASIONALLY I HAVE AN ACTUAL COLD AND WHEN I DO I FEEL BETTER.

    RIGHT EYE SEEMS AS IF THERE IS FLUID BEHIND IT AND SOMETIMES WEEPS. ON ROUTINE VISITED TO OPTICIAN FOR EYE TEST HE NOTICED SOMETHING BEHIND MY RIGHT EYE AND WROTE TO DOCTOR, BUT WHEN VISITING EYE SPECIALIST AT AYR HOSPITAL NOTHING SHOWED UP.

    THIS CAN START AT ANYTIME LAST FOR WEEKS OR DAYS, HAVE JUST TAKEN COURSE OF ANTIBIOTICS WHICH DIDN'T WORK AGAIN. IT SEEMS TO GO OF OWN ACCORD AND SOMETIME IT CAN BE BROUGHT ON BY SNEEZING.

    SOMETIMES GET A METALIC TAST IN MOUTH. FEEL AS IF I COULD JUST GET A HOOVER AND SUCK THE DAM THING OUT OF THAT AREA, WHAT EVER IT IS.

    THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY FACE ALWAYS SEEM 2 TIMES THE SIZE OF MY LEFT - TO ME THAT IS.


    MAKES ME FEEL REALLY HORRIBLE.

    HAVE SEEN 2 DIFFERENT ENT DOCTORS A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, HAD CAT SCAN AND NOTHING SHOWS, BUT I MIGHT ADD THESE HAVE BEEN DONE WHEN I HAVE NOT BEEN SUFFERING THE ABOVE.

    I HAVE BEEN OFF WORK AND REALLY DOWN WITH THIS FOR 2 WEEKS MY DOCTOR VISITED AND SAW THAT MY FACE WAS SWOLLEN AND RED AND GAVE ME NOSE SPRAY AND ANTIBIOTICS AND STATED IT WAS SINUSITIS. EVEN VISITED DOCTORS ON CALL AT NEW YEAR AND HE STATED WHEN EVER I WENT IN DOOR IT WAS SINUS TROUBLE JUST BY LOOKING AT MY FACE. HAVE JUST HAD SECOND COURSE OF ANTIBOITICS IN 2 WEEKS AND MY FACE IS STILL REALLY SORE AND EARS ARE FULL. MY NECK AT THE MOMENT IS REALLY SORE ALSO.

    BEEN TO NEUOROLOGIST
    HAD ACCUPUNCTURE THIS YEAR ALSO
    JUST HAD WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTED THINKING IT COULD THECAUSE, BUT THIS HAS NOT HELPED.
    JUST VISITED CRAINIAL OESTPATH WHO THINKS I HAVE GLUE EAR, BUT WHAT ABOUT ALL MY OTHER SYMPTOMS

    Hey Merc,

    Check out the tempero madibular joint disorder board on this site - think it might explain a lot. Facial swelling and pain sounds much more like that than an ear disorder - along with some of your other symptoms -full ears, sinus pain etc... (people experience it in many different ways) Doctors in England/Scotland are very ignorant about this - they are much more up on it in The States. Dentists know more - but again, better in The States than here. My dentist is Swedish, trained there, which might explain why she knew about it and pointed out it may be the cause of my woes.

    Heya hbep! Hehe. Nice seeing you on a different part of the board. I was sloring over here hoping to find some ear comfort. Merc, I'd listen to hbep and definately check out tmjd. You may be having some ear problems but most of your symptoms sound more like tmjd. Ear problems can trigger the start of tmjd and getting treatment early can help your chances of recovery. In the meantime until you can see a doctor, I'd ice down your face. It helps me a lot with the jaw/face pain.

    Hey Justpancho,

    Good to see you over here too I know a lot of people on this board as spent 8 months thinking the problem was only my ears - still don't know if my ears triggered the tmjd or whether it was the other way round. May never know - sigh.

    Although it's good to have someone holding up the tmjd corner on the inner ear board as lots of people, like MERC above, and me through my initial 7 months, don't know about it or that it can affect the ears and cause dizziness.

    Anyway, here's wishing you as symptom free as possible easter weekend.
