I have a curious set of symptoms that just began three days ago.
The first symptom to appear was what felt like a mild headache, that comes and goes, and results in an odd sensitivity to touch on my scalp. No fever, cough, stuffy or runny nose. Within hours of the headache, my ear started to hurt... very mildly. Feels a little tender when moved. My sub-mandibular saliva gland on the right side became very swollen and tender to the touch.
I went to an ENT, and he manipulated the gland, checked my ears, throat, etc., and prescribed a one week course of the antibiotic Averox. He couldn't explain the pain on top right side of my head, which is now very sensitive to light pressure. There is no pain at all, though, if I apply more than light pressure - it simply disappears.
This ENT is normally quite competent, so I don't have much reason for concern, but the fact that he couldn't explain the pain made me curious enough to post here. Anyone out there with an idea, either diagnostic or treatment-oriented?
