How are you? Ear pain and discomfort may be due to ear problems or from a different area. This "referred pain" can come from jaw joint, tonsillitis, cervical spine disease or even sinusitis. If it persists, you may need to have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. A referral to an ENT doctor may be warranted depending on the clinical examination of the ear and other head and neck areas. Take care and do keep us posted.
