I am a 28 years old female, and experiencing these symptoms on and off for a couple of months. It started as a shooting ear pain on the left side and throat pain when swallowing.. I was sure that I would get sick but it suddenly dissapeared. In the meantime my left side of tongue got sore. It usually goes away for the next day but comes back after a couple of days. It just hurts like i have bitten it but i didnt.
I have an appointment for an ENT on Wednesday and I will also go for my yearly visit to the dentist. I will ask them but i am really scared about this. I have read that the first sign of oral cancer can be ear pain and the tongue hurts only when it has already spread. :( Please please can you ease my mind?
Oh and i also have an impacted wisdom tooth on that side very near to the nerves.. I wondered if that can be the cause.
I am freaking out.
