Ear Pain

I have been having sharp stabbin pains in my left ear all day and now my scalp is tender to even soft touch on left side.  Could this be anything to do with sinus infection?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The pain could be due to otitis interna (inner ear infection). This could have caused lymph nodes to enlarge and hence the scalp pain. Sometimes the infection can spread into the mastoid bone behind the ear and cause pain in the scalp. You will need to consult your primary care physician for further evaluation, who may then refer you to an ENT specialist.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
