Painful Lymph Node Behind Ear?

Recommended Posts

Past couple of days behind my ear, I think is lymph nodes, they do not 'appear' to look different than the other side, but it but hurts something awful, like if I was burned by a curling iron.. My temp is little higher than usual, 98.3' I am usually 96.7, don't feel feverish... I don't think it is related to POTS, but just wondered if anyone knows anything about this.....I tried my good friend Google, but didn't find a lot of info...I will try to get in to see my GP, but geese it hurts something awful....none stop burning (my inner ear feels fine)...

My wife gets that from time to time. (She doesn't have POTS.) not sure exactly why it happens but it's happened to her for years. If she doesn't touch it at all, it barely hurts, but if she touches it a little, it hurts so much. Hers usually goes away in a few days.

I couldn't take it went to the dr... He said neuropathy of the ear and tenderness goes hand in hand with typically with shingles and/or infection.....said usually if shingles will present after day 6 of pain....so decided to start me on meds as a precaution and will call him in 3 days to see how I am doing. Sigh....the pain is better today and tenderness is better....we shall see

Hi,

Just a typical Saturday night for me doing medical research....

I looked up clonidine and noticed a side effect is a painful swelling of the salivary gland (located, it said, behind the ear). Do you take it? Could be a medical mystery solved if you do!

Hope you're better now!
