I'm kinda in a bad mood and have been suffering with ear pain for 3 weeks and don't know what to do. I know I'm not an active poster here, but trying to become one. I'm looking for someone will similar stories to me and which therapy could help me recover.
So here goes my story:
I've had ear pain for 4 weeks. I first had it on my left ear, seems like it was ear wax. Then after 6 days or waiting the doc finally had time to remove my ear wax. Problem was solved I hoped. It was a very stressful period for me those 6 days because I couldn't hear anything and I was thinking about sudden deafness. However, one day later I started having pain in my right ear. This time the pain was different, no deafness but rather a filled feeling and sometimes pulling sensation in my ear.
Went and visited 2 ENT specialists and they couldn't find really anything with the ear. I first thought of Eustachian tube disfunction but they said that wasn't the case. So the protocol is, if there isn't anything wrong with the ear then it must be TMJ.
Not really convinced by this diagnosis. Ever since getting this diagnoses my jaw started to hurt more.
I visited a jaw physiotherapist, he saw some tension in my jaw and tried dry needling some trigger point. Effect wasn't really noticeable. I had a slightly duller pain but fullness still remains.
Long story short:
Has someone ever had fullness and stretching sound in their ear caused by their JAW?
How does such a traject look like? What are your experiences? Will the fullness be gone one day.
The pain is gone whenever I take benzo's to relax.
