I have severe burning in both ear canals. I have recently started wearing in the ear hearing aids. Is this a common problem and should I see a gp ?

Fitting: I don't know what exactly is causing the burning in your ear canals, but hearing aids must be properly fit before wearing them. Not all dispensers of hearing aids take the time required to do this properly, and sometimes a licensed audiologist may be needed for this purpose. ...Read more

If tylenol and rest relieves your symptoms its more likely pelvic stretching. ...Read more

If there is still infection present then it might require a surgical procedure know as an apicoectomy. It could also be something else. It is important to consult the person who performed the root canal to figure out what's going on. ...Read more

The nerves in the...: head and face are intricately wired & densely packed. The brain can get confused about where a sensation is coming from.

Just because it's confined to your head doesn't mean it's "all in your head". Please see a doctor! ...Read more
