Pain In The Right Ear After Waking Up?
Morning, I want to ask why my right ear suddenly hurts after waking up? Even though before going to bed it’s fine

Poor sleeping position. Sleeping position that presses the earlobe in such a way can cause pain in the earlobe. However, this condition is not dangerous and will improve on its own. Bitten or possessed by insects. Small insects can be drawn into the ear canal due to warmth and moisture, so if you feel pain followed by something moving in the ear canal, then insects may enter when you are unconscious. Bacterial infection. This can happen at any time, and will be triggered by the ear that is often taken in water, injury to the ear that is often scratched, and so on.
