Pain in ears pins and needles in head and head aches could it be an ear infection  or worse?

Non-specific: An ear infection can be confined to the skin of the ear canal (external otitis) or fluid or pus in the middle ear space (otitis media). The latter is almost always associated with a hearing loss. Pins and needles in the head and headache are too non-specific to evaluate except to reassure you that it is unlikely to be due to an ear infection. ...Read more

Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

How do you stop an upset stomach from ketones when you flushed all them out. My blood sugar is 210 it came down from 500+ and on top of this I have an ear infection.

How do you stop an upset stomach from ketones when you flushed all them out. My blood sugar is 210 it came down from 500+ and on top of this I have an ear infection.

Problems: Your blood sugar level at 210 is way too high and needs careful attention. Your age is a critical issue. If your diabetes levels are less than about 70-150 and you have started the meds before age 30, that is OK. If your levels begin much later and your blood sugar is high you need even more attention. I don't know your age or weight but you MUST see an Endocrinologist. ...Read more
