This may be middle ear infection or ortitis media. You may need to take an antibiotic.
Could be your jaw joint, or a gland problem. What kind of pain with ear? Is it blocked?
I have experienced very similar symptoms, mine was due to misaligned vertebrae and a chiropractor helped immensely. I would certainly consider seeing one, plus, if not better, see an MD for an antibiotic.
I have a genetic bone disease so chiropractor is unfortunately is out of out of the question.
It is just achy, maybe slightly itchy, I feel the pain in and along my jaw and down my neck. It suddenly stopped for a day and then came back with a vengeance. It hurts to swallow, I get a sharp pain that shoots through my ear , especially with cold fluids.
This may sound odd but the pain on my left side stopped without any treatment about a week ago. Thing is now I have the same feeling on the right side of my face. There seems to be a little swelling just under my jaw a little bit under my right ear. What can this be, it can't be just coincidence.???
Sounds like you have a slight degeneration of the jaw bone you need to see your dentist and you might have to have a *** shield for bed time your grinding your teeth and that is causing the pain I have it plus you might need a cream to rub into the jawbone near your ear
