I've gone form the Lyme board to this one. I'm under the care of the well known doctor in NYC, doing his protocol, hepapressin injections and all. Things were going well up to about three weeks ago.

All my symptoms have been on the left side of my head near the temple, sometimes pain, more like inflammation, sometimes feels like my head is 'hot.' These symptoms were very mild until I had a yelling match with someone three weeks ago. Since then I've been unable to get back to where I was. Very much the post-exertion malaise feeling most of us suffer from.

Now I'm wondering if it isn't something to do with my inner ear. My left ear is particularly bad.

Just wondering if anyone here has experienced a similar symptom. Again, this is my only symptom, the head inflammation thing.

I would find myself an ENT as soon as possible. Having pressure in one side of your head with ringing in your ear may be cured by cleaning of the ear.

I have an ear that will not drain right. Both of my ears ring and buzz, but the severe pressure is in the ear that won't drain and has to be drained by my ENT. It is an instant relief from the pressure. I dont want to minimize your problem, just sharing my own experience. If only all the rest of my neuropathic pain could be helped..

Happy New Year and I hope 2014 brings pain relief for everyone........Cathy

I have only just joined the forum and have read your message. It is more than a decade since I first started to get pain to the left of my head. I cannot put it down to just one thing because a series of incidents had happened and I had become very ill.
The worste thing of all is trying to get help for something which cannot be seen once the original reason for it starting up in the first place has gone.

I can only talk about things from my own perspective and wondering whether you may have problems with you left jaw which you may not be aware of. My own pain sounds very similar so I know how debilitating it is.

Jaw problems in CFS/ Fibromyalgia are not uncommon. Any of the following can happenen with jaw dysfunction -
Unexplained ear pain, dry mouth, sleep disturbance, night time grinding of teeth, referred sinus pain, sensation of the temple feeling `hot/burning`.

If a dentist has put fillings in which are `too high`or your teeth were altered in any way over past years it is worth while having a dentist check out your `bite`. A night time appliance may also help.

Best Wishes
