The question is why does my ear ache in my head? Please reply
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pain in the ear can be caused by many possibilities, including infection of the external ear or otitis externa, infection of the middle ear or otitis media, obstruction by a foreign object (for example, an ear entered by an animal or a cotton bud is left behind), a blockage by cerumen / dirt hardened ear, ear injury / tumor, ear tumor, other causes such as pain and infection of teeth and gums, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), tonsillitis or peritonsillary abscess, herpes zoster infection in the head and face area.
Basically innervation in the ear area does have the same innervation roots with innervation around the face and head, therefore pain in the ear area (for example due to infection of the ear) can indeed be felt up to the head and face area as well (and vice versa). For now, try to take your medication according to the rules given by your doctor until it runs out, if indeed pain still occurs after the drug runs out, you can check yourself back to the doctor for re-examination, or you can also go directly to the ENT doctor for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
