Sat update -
I went to the dr. He said i have an inner ear and middle ear infection but it looks clear......?? Gave me antibiotics and numbing drops.
The drops arent doing shit.
****Update

Ignore typos. Im laying on my side. About 10inutes ago it got really painful then stoped hurting.... :-/

I found some of ds' antibiotic drops from when he had his tubes put in in December. I know med sharing is bad but im desperate. I used 2 drops and they are just sitting there.... not going in.... this sucks.

My ear/jaw is killing me! Ive been taking 2-500mg of extra strength aceamofin (sp??) , nasal decongestant and using orajel.

The orajel does nothing so im assuming its not tooth related.

I googled and it says inner ear infection, swimmers ear or some rare infection.

Of course the dr is closed, the er is an hr away (wouldnt go for this even though it hurts a TON!)

Is this what an ear infection feels like?! Its painful right where the tag of your ear is. Hurts when i open and close mouth, chew, talk etc.

I have an overbite so I get that all the time. You could have hurt your jaw.

Try heating a little mentholatum and olive oil on a spoon over the stove, until the menthol stuff is melted. then soak it up in a cotton ball and put it in your ear. Instant relief. Makes it heal faster too.

Does heat on your ear help?

How you explained it is like my jaw pain. Especially when I got my wisdom teeth removed. I haven't had an ear infection in forever but they always hurt on the inside for me.
