I have a throbbing pain around my ears especially between ear and jaw. My reg doctor checked my ears and they are fine but the throbbing and pain by my ear drums is driving me crazy. I thought it was from my TMJ but had that checked too. Now after several weeks my throat and neck feel like I have a bunch of throbbing marbles in them. The throbbing seems more on the outside but there are no lumps to go with the feeling. No fever, blood cell counts are perfect, no weight loss.... Concerned because I'm a former smoker...any ideas?
