I have a sharp pain behind the ear on my skull happend a year ago I had concussion have had no other head injury since

Sprain

Concussion
If your injury was severe enough to cause a head injury, it is likely you injured the ligaments between your head and your neck. The mucles of the neck attatch to the bones of the head and can be very painful until healed. A year is sufficient time to heal this pain with the physical therapy you have probobly undergone. See a Physiatrist for more help. Consider Prolotherapy injections.

I have an ear discharge, clear watery not very heavy no pain or head injury for about 12 hours .What can it be caused by please?

CSF leak

Injuries
Clear drainage from your ear after a head injury is suggestive of a cerebrospinal fluid leak. If you have not already, you should see a neurosurgeon for further evaluation. Good luck.

Even if you are a physician, and it doesn't sound as if you are, you can't be your own physician. You need to see a doctor, one who will thoroughly evalute you for acute brain injuries and perhaps order CT or MRI scans to see what injury may be present to the skull or the brain. Whether your injuries are from sports (boxing, other types of combat sports) or an assault you need to be properly assessed. Don't delay.

Dr. Robert Devin answered:

Please tell me, could a root canal cause ear pain on opposite side of head?

Opposite head pain

Head
It is highly unlikely that an abscess tooth on one side will cause pain on the opposite side of your head. It is more likely that you have a second infected tooth or infection .Seek professional assessment.

Mild ache left side of head sometimes left ear pain or eye pain, what to do?

Left side head pain

Open-uri20140329-28964-ghy7d7
One sided head pain behind one's eye could be migraine. But you should see a physician and get a medical diagnosis as it could be a medical condition that requires treatment or further diagnostic evaluation. If it is migraine, Stress management therapy, biofeedback and/or medication are treatment possibilities. As far as the ear pain, that could be tension. But see a physician for an evaluation.
