Ear pain and pain under jaw pain even in back neck all left side. Dr said no ear infection just red. But I can't even sleep it hurts so bad?

Red?: What does he/she mean "red"? No diagnosis? Might be a TMJ disorder. I'd have an oral surgeon look at you. If TMJ, see a TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals. ...Read more

You might be able to seek care in a local dental school for treatment at a reduced rate. However, expect the process to take longer. ...Read more

I've had sore glands, jaw pain, and ear pain for almost 2 weeks. Dr diagnosed as sinus/middle ear infection but z pack didn't help. What should I do?

Try again: A middle ear infection should include decreased hearing. Pus in the nose running over the opening to the eustachian tube could cause ear pain. If it's mainly jaw pain it may be TMJ and not infection at all. See an ENT and get a good nasal exam. You may want to call your doctor first and see if he wants to try a second antibiotic. A z pak could miss some important bacteria. ...Read more
