Hello. Looking for answers to the medical mystery that is my body.

A couple of months ago, I had an ear ache in my left ear, as well as scalp pain (as if someone were pulling my hair) on the -left- side of my head. It lasted for about 4 weeks. I went through a bottle of tylenol to deal with it. Finally one day, it up and disappeared. No more scalp pain or earache.

Yesterday, I noticed my -right- ear hurting. Curiosity led me to scratch the right side of my head, and sure enough, I now have the same problem... but on the -right- side of my head. I guess I'm concerned now that it's happening to the other side of my head. I could've discarded all of the thoughts and notions when it went away last time, but now I'm concerned.

Any help would be appreciated.
