Pressure all around ears & base of skull. most pressure under and at temple of right ear. Getting a rush of burning feeling in my head and ears, uncomfortable. Trouble sleeping, hard to slow heart beat, throbbing in head and rush of pressure.

And what might cause rapid heart rate: things like hyperthyroidism, medication effects, etc. Get good ENT exam, too. But once those things have been checked, I would really look at anxiety as a potential cause. You may not even know why you feel anxious...but help is available.

Always have sinus issues. Noticed a knot in front of ear no pain or color change. Only noticeable by touching the area. Also burning feeling.

Lymph node.: That sounds like a pre-auricular lymph node, which could enlarge in response to an ear or sinus infection. If it eventually goes away completely, say in two to four weeks, then there's no cause for concern, especially if you have symptoms of said infections. If it does not go away, you may want to have it looked at - sometimes we need to take these out for definitive diagnosis if they linger. ...Read more

TMJ more likely to be bilateral, but parotitis can be bilateral too - like mumps for example.

Experiencing burning sensation, warm skin & skin irritation feeling on face & ears. No change meds/diet. Last time @ doc BP norm. What could be cause?
