I am having this pain behind the ear about an inch below. Could it be lymph node.It is not swollen. It is kind of dull sometime shooting pain. I get this once in while. What could this be?>\ I think the exact pain spot is posterior auricular. See this link for image

Hi Ssing,

I get it and have been told it's due to allergies and my esthestian tubes being clogged and not draining as well as they should. Everyone is different. I would check it out with your primary just to be on the safe side.

Take care,

Faith

Hi Ssing,

I found generic Zyrtec at Walmart fairly cheaply and that has helped with the allergies lately.

Do you ever lose hearing in one ear? Almost like your underwater? This happens all the time and my doc said he thought it was an ear dysfunction. I'm having fibrofog and can't remember what he called it.

Anyway, I was just curious.

Take care,
