I developed a sudden and severe earache 24 hours ago that is worsening. I also have severe neck pain on the same side which was present first. I do not know if the two are related but the combined pain of the two is unbearable and my arm and face are both slightly numb on that side too.
I have a doctors appointment in 2 days(earliest i can get in) but the pain is so intense I'm seriously considering going to ER. What should i do?
Also, neither pain relief, nor heat, nor ice have helped one iota.
