I had arthroscopic shouler surgery last Tuesday with a shoulder block and I have noticed that my right ear lobe is numb and swollen. Is this normal?
Not likely related: The nerves that were blocked and the nerves dealing with your ear are not the same. It is unlikely that the anesthetic block is the issue. You may have been laying on that ear to cause your symptoms, or they may be a totally unrelated issue that have occurred in time suggesting a relationship where there is none. It would be appropriate for a doctor to evaluate your ear ...Read more
Question unclear: Please rephrase the question.Get a more detailed answer ›
A portion of my left side of my head feels numb. Its in the area where my left temporal lobe is. Its usually intervals of every 4 hours. Why?
Whoa, boy: Forget about your left temporal lobe. The brain feels nothing except sensations from other parts of the body. This is all about outside your skull. You forgot to mention how long this has been happening, how long it lasts, & what "numb" means: Less feeling, tingling, etc. That still won't be enough. You'll have to leave your computer & see a nonvirtual doctor to find out why. ...Read more

Please help! What is the cause of appearance of fused ear lobes in some persons against the progression of evolution?
That's silly: Evolution doesn't proceed in any particular direction. This is such a basic misunderstanding that if you heard it from a biology instructor, you should report that individual to their supervisor. It's the natural tendency of living things to differ from one another, more or less randomly. Please, to be literate in the 21st century, get a good book to understand basic biology. ...Read more

Sebaceous cysts: Many people have these cysts, which develop in the earlobes and behind the ears. They are oily, containing sebum, and sometimes can get infected. If you're able to express and drain them on your own, I would not be too concerned. If you develop a large one or it becomes infected, then sometimes surgical removal is necessary. ...Read more
Too Ear-ly To Know: The sensory innervation of the ear canal is complex, so it's very unlikely that a nerve problem is causing your numbness. Also the fact that your symptom is"transient" is unusual. And it would be helpful to know if your numbness is a complete loss of feeling or some variant of that (tingling, decreased sensation, etc). Someone needs to look in there to see if something is stuck in there, or whatever ...Read more

R/O TMJ: YES: TMJ can be very difficult to treat and overlap several specialists. I hav had the best results with ENT and oral surgery.. It can start with a poor bite due to genetics/after trauma/Bruxism secondary to stress. A good nite guard is essential. Topical Voltaren (diclofenac) gel and a low dose muscle relaxant (skelaxin/FLEXERIL) /BOTOX/LIDOCAINE injections can help. Prednisone with quick taper may help. ...Read more
