The other day I was just sitting there and then my earlobe started hurting extremely bad. I actually yelled because of the pain and I have a high pain tolerance. Soon after I noticed there was some redness on the bottom of my earlobe close to where it meets my jaw. Then the next day I noticed my jaw started to hurt, but its on the opposite side of where the pain in my ear was. I don't know if they are related or not. I was told it could be shingles, but I don't think I have any of the other symptoms..and my earlobe hasn't hurt since (the redness is still there).
Please help me, I tend to think the worst of things like this...
