Dad with MS pain behind ear

My Dad has had MS for 10 years and has recently been suffering with a pain behind his ear which has now developed into a pain extending from the inner ear down his right arm which sometimes is numb

If anyone has suffered similar or knows anything about how to deal with it I would really like to hear from you.

Many Thanks

Re: Dad with MS pain behind ear

Welcome. I will sometimes get a pain behind my ear, mainly my right ear and it is usually about the level of my ear lobe. If I do not see to it, it will radiate either downward to my arm or to the back of my skull and downward. I use acupressure at the spot of the pain. Acupressure has been my pain relief.

Sometimes, however, acupressure does nothing. On those occasions, I will use cold compresses and lie down.
MS diagnosed since October 3, 1982
MS onset circa 1977

Re: Dad with MS pain behind ear

I have that also, right ear too, but too painful to touch anywhere near it. For me the pain radiates to the eye and can last several days. I lie down, close my eyes and rest. I speculated it may be caused by eye strain.
