An_248526 posted:
I am having ear pain due to cold air from last 1month. I took pain killer but it not helped me. Dure to ear pan i am gettting severe pain in right temple,skull,jaw,throat. I went to ENT but there is not major problem and not even doctor is able to detect what will be the reason.. I faced issue during cold air only. Doctor sugggested me Methylprednisolone tablet for 5 days. After 1st day only i found my pain is stop , i also went in cold air and it is not paining.

what will be the reason is it related to ear nervous or musscles?.
will this tablet work as pain kille?

I am very sorry, but I do not know anything about your case, your doctor's examination findings, or your diagnosis, to be able to address either question. This is something that you will need to ask your doctor -- the person who prescribed this steroid used for relieving inflammation.
