    Left ear sensation
    Eastpoint posted:
    For several months I have had a strange sensation behind my left ear. This very mild pain or sensation is intermittent, comes and go's during the day. It's almost like the pain of plucking a hair and it doesn't usually last long. Some days no pain, but other days it is more prevalent. It is more of an annoyance, but has me concerned that it may be a signal of another problem. I have also had some other strange head sensations over the last several months. My Health is generally good. I have a history of a slighly low white blood cell count that my doctor doesn't seem to feel concerned. The WBC range over the last year has been from 3600 to 5300. Within the last week I noticed a small pea sized bump behind the top of my left ear. Any ideas Thank You Thanks for your Reply!
