Right Ear Pain To The Eye And Jaw?
My right ear has been hurting for 1 week and now it has started to spread to the right eye, right jaw and right tooth, how to heal it to be honest I am not able to feel the pain compared to having to feel the pain of being left married by an ex.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the right ear, radiating to the eyes, jaw, and teeth, there are many possible causes. One of the most common is related to inflammation of the jaw joint (temporomandibuler). There are many triggers for inflammation in this jaw joint, a few examples:
History of injuries around the jaw Unbalanced use of the jaw, for example if you only chew food using one side of your teeth Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders) Dislocation (joint displacement) Fractures or cracks in the jaw joint, etc. Pain that appears in around the jaw can spread to other areas around it, including the ears, teeth, eyes, and the entire head. This pain can appear with mild, moderate, to severe intensity depending on the severity and cause of the inflammation.
Not only inflammation in the jaw joint, you can also feel the pain due to other causes, such as trigeminal neuralgia (pain due to trigeminal nerve disorders), migraines (throbbing headache due to neurovascular disorders in the brain), cavities, gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), otitis externa (inflammation of the outer ear), tinnitus (ringing in the ears), psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
You should first relieve the pain you feel by using a warm compress on the side of the sore head and taking paracetamol. Avoid over-massaging or leaning too long on the side of the head that hurts, as well as not chewing food just limited to one side of the tooth. In this way, the pain will usually slowly improve within 1 to 3 days.
However, if the pain does not improve, or appears accompanied by other complaints, such as swelling, numbness, fever, cavities, visual disturbances, sleep problems, speech problems, problems opening and closing the mouth, then you should not let it drag on. Check yourself directly to a doctor or neurologist for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
