Three swollen cervical lymph nodes all on left side of neck some ear pain doctor HS seen one of them says wait 2 month fbc normal should I be worried?

Lymph nodes: The lymph nodes usually enlarge as response to an infection in the vicinity.It lasts maximum 2-3 weeks and as the infection goes away (with antibiotics usually) the lymph nodes disappear. Outside this scenario, i would be worried and demand further investigation (ct is appropriate, a blood smear and CBC with differential, as well as a bmp with enzymes markers analysis) up to an excision biopy. ...Read more

TMJ: This could be the TMJ (temperomandibular joint). As you lay down, and turn to your side.. You're likely putting pressure on the joint.. Taking Motrin before bed might help but Motrin can disrupt sleep. An eval by your dentist or your local ENT may help as well. ...Read more

Had ear infection tht spread,  jaw cldnt open &  stabbing pain in head behind infected ear. Pain in head has returned months later. Shld I b concerned?

See you PCP: Always pay attention to a new or recurrent/worsening pain. This could be a recurrent infection or mechanical damage from the previous infection. Or maybe you are grinding your teeth at night. A quick look in your ear and exam of the jaw and teeth should go a long way to ruling out these possibilities. It is always better to have things evaluated early BEFORE they have a chance to spread. ...Read more

I have server ear pain I went to the ER and I do not have a ear infection I can barely early out of it and it has a sharp pain like stsbbing pain deep?

Think of jaw mucles: The answer that was posted about fluid is probably not correct. Firstly, a diagnosis of normal ears, if we accept that, is that the sharp pain could be facial neuralgia. But the most common cause of otalgia (pain in the side of the face when the ears are normal) is tmd (temporo-mandibular disorder). Otolaryngologists see this problem very frequently and masticatory muscle spasm is most likely. ...Read more
