Earache when running and sleeping
RachelMcGuy posted:
For as long as I can remember, whenever I would run with a slight cold breeze I would get a terrible ear ache and it feels like there is just pressure needing to be released. After a good 10 minutes or so, I would start getting a migraine (which I have been diagnosed with severe migraines with auras) and I do not know what to do. I've seen a ENT doctor and she took a look inside my ear and said nothing was wrong. Recently though, every time I wake up from sleeping on my side I get a shooting pain throughout my ear and it hurts for about 10-20 minutes or so. But when I sleep with my hand under my head to let in air, my ear is fine. Anyone know whats going on??
