For the past couple of months, I have been experiencing strange neck pains stretching from directly above my left clavicle traveling all the way up behind my left ear. Along with these neck pains, I have a terrible ear ache and constant popping in my ears. Sometimes, I get the feeling that I'm going to pass out. I'll start to hear a ringing in my ear and lose almost all hearing in my left ear. The pain also increases as this happens. Aside from one incident, I can usually shake it off, but the symptoms continue for up to ten to fifteen minutes. I'll get really bad shakes and jaw clenching(shivers), very high body temperature and sweaty palms and feet, really thirsty, loss of feeling in certain parts of my body, heart racing, foggy(almost dream-like and blurry) vision, muscle spasms/twitches particularly in my neck, an odd pain/tingling sensation just above my molars and wisdom teeth(almost like it's inside my gums, maybe my sinus cavity?), and horrible brainfog to where I can hardly think for myself. I've noticed that since the first episode and after each one, more and more white hairs seem to be appearing on my head. I even found my first white hair on my face just the other day. It's almost as though the circulation is being cut off to my brain.

These symptoms occur almost daily ever since I started seeing a blur in my left eye a few weeks before my first episode. The strange blur was in my eye for about a week, and at the end of that week, I passed out in my bathroom, waking up seconds, possibly minutes, later with a broken toilet, seeing colors, and having no clue where I was. I have only fully blacked out just that one time, but it has felt like it was coming on countless times since then. I usually just shake it off until I feel well enough to stand up and walk around without fear.

I've been to the doctor, thinking I had an inner ear infection, and they said that I have very little hearing loss and no signs of infection or fluid build up. My sinuses are also fine, but I feel constant tightness and fullness in my head. Sometimes this turns into headaches. I've had two hospital visits, five visits to the doctor, and a visit to the nurse at school all in the past two months. I've had an EKG, ECG, and an MRI done, and everything has shown up just fine. My blood pressure is fine, and from what doctors have told me, my heart is also fine. My last two wisdom teeth were just pulled two weeks ago, and it got rid of the ear aches and popping for a few days, but they came back recently.

Could it be a clogged artery? Could it be my heart? Could it be my thyroid? Could it be stress? Could it be anxiety or panick attacks?

I have a cardiologist appointment in four days, and I am going to make my first visit to the psychiatrist soon since my doctor, an ear specialist, and doctors at the hospital tell me I'm perfectly fine(except for maybe some slight paranoia and dehydration). I'm not sure if it's thyroid related(my mom has hypothyroid;I read somewhere that thyroid disorders uncommonly cause white/gray hair growth), if it's heart related, or if it's anxiety related at this point. It seems to occur more frequently when I'm thinking and obsessing about it constantly. I'm not sure if these symptoms are a harmful to me in any way. My doctor seems to think I'm fine. Any help?

I have had the same trouble as this person has had. The pain is in my ear than it started in my back teeth, than my temple area. Than tonight I have noticed while using my sleep apnea machine I think the pressure is making it worse. As if my sinus is blocking the pressure of the machine. I wonder if I am not breathing out enought air? The Doctor has not seen anything wrong with my ear also. I did have a cold. The Doctor thinks maybe I picked up a virus infection from the swimming pool that has infected my ear, something to do with the nerve in my ear and it has hit my jaw and temple and my hand just like below with this person. I thought I was going nuts. It is so painful. Hard to discribe. like someone sticking knifes in my temple and ear. And nothing is wrong with my teeth. I wonder if it has anything to do with my sleep apnea?
If anyone has any answers please feel free to answer thanks. Lets hope we can find the problem.

Sounds like you have an inner ear infection that is easily treatable with really inexpensive medication. Even without health insurance you can afford ear infection meds. Just go to your local clinic.

I have been having the same problems for almost 11 years. It started with headaches everyday. I have headaches, neck & shoulder pain, & ear pain. I also had constant ear infections. I went to doctor after doctor, and even tried physical therpy. I went to a new ENT and found out that I have TMJ. Go see an orthodontist, they can help.

ok i went to the dr again today
good news
well as far as the FINALLY knowing whats what so now we can FIX it

had a catscan no breaks, no fractures etc
no infection either
blood work also done and the dr gave me a diagnosis and info to bring home and know what i am dealing with (this review was last updated on may 2008)

and the best part a treatment has been started for me.

this pain is from trigeminal neuralgia (tn)
it comes from the 5th cranial (t) nerve

this nerve is the sensory supply to the face and sensory and motor supply to the muscles
there are three major divisions:
opthalmic
maxillary
mandibular

whatever they mean i only know its alot of pain and it is connected to the nerve in the skull
and yes you can have these symtoms even for years in some cases

causes:
it is compression of the nerve which leads to symptoms of demyelination
how it results in this is still unclear

in my case i have a demyelinated disease : multiple sclerosis
BUT it can happen to people without ms also

i am having an mri done next (as i stated in above post)
they want me to do it next week but after i found out the rest of what i am going to add im sure you will see why i dont want to wait that long!

this can be a mass lesion, a tumor, or compression by an aberrant loop of an artery or vein(this is thought to account for 80 - 90 % of cases)

now i dont know what these mean so forgive me but i am going to list them just the same. cuz if someone out there sees this they can at least look into it and maybe help them the dr help you too! here goes

other causes of this nerve compression include:
vestibular schwannoma(acoustic neuroma),
meningioma,
epidermoid or other cyst
OR rarely a saccular aneurysm or arteriovenus malformation

ok now i have aneurysms behind each of my retinas in my eyes....
waiting another week while going thru this is not on my option list as far as i am concerned.
ms or not!!!
i want to know for sure i dont have something waiting to blowup in my head!

anyway, just wanted to let u know what i found out about this
and will post back if anyone is interested.

I have so many of the same symptoms for years now.

started with pain shooting in the back of my head and these headaches that felt like migraines. they would happen after i worked out.
then i started getting clogged ears.
then i developed a pain up my right side from my neck to my right ear, constant pain
then i got my rick cheek twitching.
one after another over the course of about 8 years or so, andI am stuck with all of them. went to ENT doctors, got MRIs, xrays, went to a chiropractor, nothing has helped. it has depressed me and made me lose hope. i hate being in pain, and it feels like i cant live. like i have lost 8 years of my LIFE to this. i need to find out what it is, cuz the doctors dont know and dont seem to care. i had a smart aleck doctor who just wanted to give me shots to numb the pain, but wouldnt figure out what was wrong. what a jerk.

After reading all these posts, all the symptoms listed by all posters are what is referred to as radio sickness and is caused by radio radiation and electro magnetic radiation.

Punch "radio sickness" into the Google search engine and you will get enough to read about such.

Then punch in "danger of DECT phones"!

Then punch in "dangers of Wi Fi".

I am sure you will get enough information of why people suffer from so many undiagnosable illnesses and get treated for anything, but nothing with drugs.

Also, dental problems is also causing unnecessary root canals and dental restoration through caps and amalgam fillings. The problem is the radiation from all this stuff is proliferating the airways.

Best of health.

Mate, if you have blood coming out of your middle ear, then you need to see a doctor.



The biggest thing that you put into your ear is your elbow.



It's obvious you have done some damage, and you don't go around belting your head into a wall.



Get to a doctor quick!
