neck pain
I have a sharp, stabbing pain behind my left ear, right at the base of my neck. Just started this afternoon (11/10/11) around 3:00 PM. What could be the cause?

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your discomfort. Possibilities that should be considered include ear infections/ inflammations, injuries/ trauma, muscle strain, nerve compressions/ impingement, vascular issues etc. It would be best to get this evaluated by a primary care physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. If the pain is severe you may consider a visit to the ER.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
