Causes Of Right Ear Pain And Throbbing?
I am 16 years old I am a woman sata want to ask, why yes my right ear feels sore and throbbing but a bit stiff so, if my outer ear touches pain, if I move my head it also hurts so much and I feel it suddenly at nightAnd this is already day 3 doc Please advise yes what should I do
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain and stiffness in the ear to spread to the head may be caused by problems with the ear, head, or other surrounding organs. Here are some possibilities:
Otitis externa (inflammation of the external ear)
Otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear) is acute
Migraine (throbbing headache due to neurovascular disorders in the brain, relation to trigeminal nerve fibers)
Trigeminal neuralgia (pain due to trigeminal nerve disorders)
Tension headache (primary headache is like being tied tight)
Others, for example injuries around the ears, tinnitus, torticollis, lymphadenitis, brain or neck tumors, head or neck injuries, hypertension, meningitis, somatoform disorders, etc.
Not all of the above conditions are dangerous. However, if the pain and stiff sensation that arises is very severe, obviously this condition can greatly limit your activities. Therefore, given the complaints that have lasted for 3 days, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT specialist. If necessary, the doctor may later coordinate with a neurologist in providing the best management for you.
For now, try to do the following tips first:
Take pain relievers that are sold freely in a partner, such as paracetamol
Warm compresses on the ear and head area that are not comfortable
Rest, do not overlap the side that feels painful and stiff
Do not carelessly massage areas that are painful and stiff
Do not pry excessive ears
Don't stress too much or think too much
Hope this helps ...
