It has been about a month now. It is such sharp pain, but it comes on strong and goes away. Sometimes it hurts for hours, other times I get a sharp peircing pain then it is ok for a while. It is way, way inside my ear. Hard to explain. Kind of inside and down, like behind my jaw. Feels like some pressure inside my ear but pain is lower. I went to the doctor and he said my ears were fine. Asked if this pain was related to exercise. Said some ear pain is connected to heart problems. Then he asked if I had chest pain. He told me to call him back if it doesn't go away. It's been a week, so I called him back. His office referred me to an ENT. Can't get in there until mid October. This is such sharp pain. So, ofcourse I now am worried of a heart attack too. Geez. Anyone hear of ear pain and heart problems?
