Hi Don't givenup! Yes in fact I was told that by my ENT not once but twice. I not only had headache, but earache also. Dr. told me that I didin't have an ear infection at all. All my pain seems to coming from my neck. He said probably it was from Arthritis in my neck. And do you believe I got earache again two yrs. later and forgot what he had said the former appt. No memory ATALL!!!!!!LOL Well, I then went to the orthopedics Dr. and from pix he took he said Arthritis w/ cervical degenerative disk disease. Recently I have pain on a daily basis from my neck. I use a warmed neck pillow and it seems to help during the day. I also do daily exercises for neck and back. I hope this gives you a bit of insight on the neck problem we share. Keep the faith!!! Take care and GOD BLESS!!!!!
