Question inflamation

The past 4 days I have had pain that comes and goes from my left side of my head and behind the ear. Afeter 2 visits to my doctor, he thinks that I have an inflamed area that is putting preasure on a nerve.
The aleave he suggested taking relieves some of the pain. He offered no suggestions for preventing this from happening. I'm looking for any suggestions for help, possible diet changes or herbs that can help keep this under control. (6 months ago I had a similar problem in my lower back)Thank you.

I think it might be difficult to offer suggestions without a diagnosis. "What" is causing pressure? "What" specifically is inflamed?

You may find chiropractic helpful -- it could be a structural impingement, perhaps made worse by postural situations or repeated maneuvers, which would make addressing it symptomatically ineffective in the long run because, as you pointed out, it may happen again and you'd like to prevent it.
