My ears (the actual ear holes) are very tender and sore. I have no ear infection, several doctors have checked my ears and they're not inflammed. I've noticed my hearing is a bit poor too. Things sound echo-ish and far away. I have trouble focusing on a conversation if in a busy environment. Any ideas as to what could be happening?

My general health is okish, I have rheumatoid arthritis but doubt it's connected. Medication wise, I take: celebrex (400mg daily), co-codamol (30mg/500mg when needed), citalopram (40mg) & injected methotrexate (20mg/0.8ml weekly) and have taken these for about 2 years.
