Re: Ear Pain!!
May 23, 2005
[QUOTE=kirstysmith]This is really unbelievable to me. I have been moaning to my doctors for over a year that I have a lack of hearing in my right ear. One doc told me to get over it I had only lost my hearing and that there was nothing else to be done. It does not hurt but i spend abut 30 times a day trying to pop my ear as it feels all blocked up and like some thing is in there. In the beginning I went to an osteopath as my neck was in a lot of pain, my jaw was constantly hurting and I also have a constant popping noise in my ear when i swallow. The only thing that hurts a lot is my cheek area the rest is really annoying. I visit a dentist he told me i grinded my teeth, i was given a guard to wear at night. This helped for a few months. I have visited so many docs and NOT ONE HAS EVER MENTIONED TMJ DISORDER. I have found this site and have sat here near to tears with relief that I have not got a tumor pressing on my ear or in my brain somewhere. Everything that everyone is describing is me to a tea. I was on a diet last year and I found some sweets that were low in calories but extremely chewy, I am convinced that these have not helped me. I have been well for a few months with no pain, but during the two week half term with my 3 children all at home the pain has returned and I am suffering with not being able to use the right side of my mouth properly. My partner cannot understand why I have gone all quiet again and why I feel totally absorbed by this pain. It is hard to describe unless you are suffering too. I would really appreciate someone coming back to me, as I feel like I can try and cure this by myself now and do some self help exercises. I am also off the the osteopath next week so I am hoping he will help me out and relieve some of this pain. I am from Unite Kingdom, we are really slow over here medically, really HORRIBLE actually. Anyway it is lovely reading all these probs, I am now going to contact my doc and insist that I get an mri done as I can go in armed with information.
Thanks again everybody :wave: :bouncing:
