Ear pain: Take some Motrin. Try to 'pop' the ears by grabbing your nose and blowing hard. This will put air into the middle ear space and may alleviate the pain if it is due to your eustAchian tube being closed. The Motrin will help the pain either from an infection or if it is your joint by the ear causing the pain. If you put your fingers in your ears and open the jaw and it is painful it could be TMJ
