Question: Pain on head that's not a headache


 Freespirit - Fri Apr 02, 2004 12:36 pm

Hi,
I started having this pain behind my left ear yesterday. It hurts if I lean my head back towards my shoulder/back and it feels tight, like it's swollen. It's gone further up the left
side of my head since then. It hurts to touch and/or to move my head around. I haven't had any cold/viruses recently.

What could this be??

Thanks!

Teri

User avatar Hi!

It could be musculoskeletal pain. Have you tried any meds yet?

Hi Bill,

Well, as suddenly as it came on, it went away!
I took a homeopathic tincture to support lymph
glands.... I wondered if that was where it was
stemming from. I have no idea, but it's gone.

Thanks, again!

Teri
