Severe pain all the time on the right side of my head, with earache and headache. What might cause it?

Severe pain all the time on the right side of my head, with earache and headache. What might cause it?

Migraine or vascular: If your hearing is normal, I doubt the ear is the source of the pain. There are many structures at the side of the face. These include the jaw joint, muscles that close the jaw, the teeth and gums. Inflammation of these structures can refer pain to the side of the head. Conversely, head pain can be caused by migraine, inflammation of vascular structures. See your primary doc.

Hi docs, would pinched nerve cause severe pain around ear?

Hi docs, would pinched nerve cause severe pain around ear?

Pinched nerve: Ear pain and a pinched nerve would be quite rare. The innervation to the ear comes from a nerve at the base of the skull and there are really no nearby structures that can "pinch" this nerve. I would speak with an ENT specialist and look for other sources for the pain.

What causes beer colored urine and severe pain behind ear and neck?

What causes beer colored urine and severe pain behind ear and neck?

See your doctor: I don't have a specific answer, but a funny reddish color to urine can indicate the presence of myoglobin, which is from red muscle that has been inflamed or destroyed. Don't know if the pain in your neck might be a muscle inflammation, but this combination of symptoms and signs is worrisome, and I would seek medical attention promptly and get whatever examination and lab tests are needed.

Can improper placement of needle & numbing agent in lower jaw cause temporary facial paralysis/tingling & severe pain in jaw, ear, neck & back of head?

Can improper placement of needle & numbing agent in lower jaw cause temporary facial paralysis/tingling & severe pain in jaw, ear, neck & back of head?

Anesthetic Block: An inferior alveolar nerve block of your lower jaw will anesthetize either your left or right side, making it feel numb and "paralyzed". Pain in your jaw, ear, neck, and back of head may be a reaction to the anesthetic, not necessarily due to improper technique. Since every issue was temporary, you should heal without incident. Discuss with your dentist.

Can a wisdom teeth that is in the bone and causing severe pain to the jaw and other teeth, cause your head to hurt? And what should I do?

Can a wisdom teeth that is in the bone and causing severe pain to the jaw and other teeth, cause your head to hurt? And what should I do?

See your dentist: Definitely, yes. In many cases wisdom teeth should be extracted due to complications associated with the presence of tooth decay. It is a common procedure, generally performed under local anesthesia, intravenous (IV) sedation, or general anesthesia by a specially trained dentist or oral surgeon. Often extracting a wisdom tooth is the best solution. See your dentist for x-ray and evaluation.

33 yr. Old female. Pain in ear, hurts when I chew, yawn, etc. What could be the cause?

Temporal mandibular: Joint dysfunction, or inflammation of the joint where the jaw or mandible is attached to the skull will cause pain with chewing, etc. This is often caused by clenching the teeth, excessive chewing hard foods, or poor alignment of the teeth. Take ibuprofen for a few days, stop chewing gum or hard foods. If it doesn't improve, see your dentist for assessment and possible bite guard for sleeping.
