Iam complaining from intermittent severe pain and cyanosis in right ear pinna relived by strong analgesics?

Sounds dangerous: If you really have a blue ear, and it requires strong analgesics! Have you seen a doctor? If not, it's time to.

Hi when when I press on my pinna it hurts on inner ear the pain stated when I was in the shower and I blew my nose and I got a severe pain in my ear?

Get checked!: Severe ear pain is not normal. You could have an infection. Pain to touch often means an infection of the external canal, but not always. Treatment is needed. Remember put no Q-tips, bobby pains, paper clips etc The only thing that you should put in your ear is your elbow or a piano! (An old and honorable and trusty medical truism.) Don't blow your nose hard for now. ...Read more

I get random pain in upper pinna or behind middle of the ear, traced all the way to under the jaw joint. For over 10yrs. Any remedy sans B12 tabs?

Jaw pain: I am assuming you have consulted your primary physician regarding this problem which has been going for so long. I would advice consulting a orofacial pain dentist as you could be having temporomandibular disorders (chronic pain in the jaw).

For starters, you could try massaging your jaw couple of times a day; it might help. Also, warm compresses for 10-15 minutes should help too. ...Read more
