Dull Pain Behind Ear Base Of Skull
I have pain when I touch the backside of my head, above the base of skull, but behind ear. Sinus infection/cavities may exist. Advice?
Unlikely sinus: Pain in the back of the head is unusual for a sinus infection. This would be more likely an ear infection but this is unlikely as well. This could be a mastoiditis which is rare but plausible. This can come from a middle ear infection not treated or inadequately treated. Other causes could be referred neck pain. See your doctor very soon. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer

Likely TMJ: Headaches and ear pain are many of the presenting chief complaints of patients with tmj. You can sort out the ringing by protruding your jaw forward when the ringing occurs. It protrusion of you jaw changes or eliminates the ringing sound then there is a jaw connection. Either way you should see a dentist specially trained in tmj.See 4 more doctor answers
