i think it is TMJ
Treating TMJ

it has been an unbelievably painful two weeks of ear pain. I think my migraines have given me the tolerance to deal with the pain, but like my migraines there are times I need to check out, not have to talk to anyone, and pretend I am ok. I have been fighting the impulse to say I am better when i am not so I won’t get much attention.

2 visits here from a dr in town; 2 visits to Prof. Dr. Spinelli in Como and the Como hospital, ear tests, 3 antibiotics – levoxacin, pantoxin, and amoxicillian, 2 steroids – deflan and pregonesone, and nose drops. oy. At least I know my hearing is good. It has been made it really hard to concentrate which I realize I have been downplaying, and I have been using the web as my escape just like i use TV. Now thanks to Nick and Erika, I think is TMJ and am trying heat, cold, and then advil throughout the day. All the medication has at least cut down on my migraines.
