Ear Pain At Night In Adults
I had grommets inserted when I was 5 three times and now as a adult I get sharp inner ear pain that usually last to a minute. Is this normal?
Not from the tubes: Very unlikely the ear pain you are getting has anything to do with the tubes you had as a child. Most like cause is strain of the tempromandibulr joint (tmj). Try motrin, soft diet for a week and don't chew gum, ice, etc. Try to chew opposite the side that hurts. If this doesn't work, see your physician. ...Read more
36 yo female with right ear pain for 2 days (no fever, drainage or other symptoms). History of ear infections as adult and child. I take azathioprine for crohn's. Should I go to doctor or wait?
Any hearing loss: The first question I ask a patient with ear ache (otalgia) is if there is any hearing loss associated with pain. If there is no hearing loss and particularly if the pain is in front of the ear, I would be thinking tmd. This could be joint disease, muscle spasm or referred pain to the side of the face (ear) from dental disease as the other reviewer suggested. ...Read more
Etiology: Ear pain or otalgia is not necessarily the result of ear disease. If your hearing is essentially normal, the most common cause of otalgia is disease of the dental structures, jaw muscle spasm, dental infection, arthritis of the jaw joint. Other causes of referred pain can reflect diseases of the neck (cervical arthritis) or diseases of the throat or even larynx. Easing pain requires a diagnosis. ...Read more

Nocturnal Bruxism: Could represent an irritation of the TMJ (which is located in front of the ear canal or 'external auditory meatus') from grinding teeth at night. Could also represent referred pain from the throat from mucosal dessication and 'mouth breathing' during sleep. How old is patient, is it one side or both sides? How long has it been present. What makes it better or worse? Otolaryngology follow up rec- ...Read more

Have slight ear pain after being in the mountains yesterday. I have to fly tomorrow night will I be ok? It would cost a lot to see a dr here.
Possibly: It sounds like the tube that equalizes pressure in the middle ear is sluggish. That means you may have trouble with the pressure changes. No problem with the flying, it is the landing that might really hurt. If you must fly, try some sudafed before you board. Then sniff a littl afrin (oxymetazoline) while airborne and chew some gum. Keep some pain pills handy just in case..... ...Read more

Probably TMJ trouble: Temporal mandibular joint syndrome is common and often the result of excessive teeth grinding/clenching, usually during sleep. The TMJ is slight in front/upper are of your ear and inflammation here can cause pain into ear and jaw.

Ear canal delicate: The ear canal is where wax collects, and we as parents want to get it out! But we should only use strategies that DON'T involve inserting something into the ear--even if it's very soft. Products like Debrox are a more gentle way to clean the ear. To be sure there was no damage to other structures, recommend you have your Pediatrician look in the ear. ...Read more
