I've been having pain in my mastoid process and I haven't done anything to it. It feels swollen compared to my other side. Any advice?
Tmj. You likely have tmj. A way to tell is to open and close the jaw with a finger placed in the TMJ socket which is roughly the pocket created when one opens the mouth and places a finger directly in front of the ear canal right at the level of the sideburns. Softer foods, warm compresses and Motrin should help. Avoid gum chewing. Other option is migraine. A swollen mastoid is rare see ENT or get ct.
