A Painful Ear Accompanied By Headache And Sore Neck?
Good morning doctor. I want to ask.
Hello Agatha, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com
Pain in the ear can be caused by many possibilities. The use of a headset for a long time (especially when used also when sleeping) can also cause ear pain. However, other possibilities must be considered, for example:
infection of the external ear (otitis externa) infection of the middle ear (otitis media) obstruction of earwax (cerumen prop) history of trauma / injury to the ear the presence of foreign objects in the ear other causes such as disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMD), infection of the teeth, infections of the tonsils / throat, etc. For the time being, you should avoid using the headset for too long. If you have a habit of using a headset while sleeping, stop the habit. If indeed the symptoms that you feel are not also improving, you should consult directly to the ENT doctor so that you can do an examination into your ear. Before checking yourself to the doctor, you should not poke your ears (either with a cotton bud, ear scrapers, fingers, or other sharp objects), do not use certain ear drops. You can help reduce pain by compressing your external ear with cold compresses.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
