I need help. I dont know if i should go to the doctor or not. My problem is: for a week now behind my ear has been swollen and hurts all the time. The pain and swelling has moved in front of my ear, my jaw line where the swelling has grown to and down in my neck. I can feel a know but hurts all the time severly. I dont have a cold, no fever, but im tired all the time to where i fall asleep sitting up. Im assuming from the pain that is occuring. Can someone please tell me what is wrong and why I am in so much pain all the time? My ear has not hurt.
The only other I have experience is: Monday I had chest pains really bad but went away and sharp pains in my knee where I would cry when they came. Now im dealing with headaches (which happens when something is not right with my body). Im a 31 yr old female and I had dentures placed in six months ago so I know its not my teeth on top. On the bottom I had one dead tooth with nothing left of it and already know it is not the problem. Please someone help me.

  • Ear pain can occur due to allergy, filling of wax in the ear, chillness, entry of any foreign body in the ear or infection in the Eustachian tube which connects ear, nose and throat. __________________ Chiropractor Lawrenceville GA
