For about a year now, anytime after listening to either louder music than I'm acustomed to, or listening to music for a long time, my ears, oddly enough, ache. While the ache goes away in a few hours, I realize when I go to clean my ears using a Q-tip, my ear canal and ear drum are very sore. I'm currently on medication for seasonal allergies, and my doctor once gave me steroids to take away my ear ache, which she said was caused by an inflammed euschain (I know that spelled wrong) tube. Also, when I go to my doctor and they routinely check my ears, there apparently isn't redness or swelling in my ear as they would have told me. I also find behind my ears is tender as well when my ears ache. I don't have any hearing diffuculty or ringing in the ears, so I don't think it's hearing loss related, as I listen to my music reasonably. So, WHY do my ears ache, why are they sore and is there anything I can do to take the pain away?
