This discussion site is new to me but as my son (He's 11 years) is experiencing a lot of pain in both ears (GP confirmed glue ear but that cleared and inflamed nose few weeks ago). But strong ear pain and sinus pain in head and eye (was very photophobic too). Now continues to have bad ear/head pain and keeps him awake at night plus bad vertigo on standing and needs support to walk now. It just been going on since symptoms commenced 2 months ago. He is so distraught and we finally been for CT scan today. I know people can wait a lot longer but because its quite serious to be getting ear pain for so long, and on reading about Labyrinthitis and other medical conditions, none seem to be stating that ear pain is predominant. I keep taking or talking to GPs who do not reassure and no painkillers help. Can anyone throw any light on this, or had this please? There may be a delay in waiting for the scan results. If he sneezes or yawns he says it feels like his eardrums will burst. He has had ear infections/problems in past but nothing like this.
