Talk to ENT on Pain In Right Outer Ear



I have pain in my right outer ear part almost every morning when I wake up. Additional info:

- I have a jaw clenching habit, maybe I do that at night as I've seen my retainers worn and torn - My right and left jaw sides make clicking noises, specially when I eat which is itself a big problem for me and very annoying - I have been on Prozac and tapering off currently - I sleep on my left ear but pain is on the right side and sometimes gets too much to even touch though I can fold the ear lobe - Pain goes away later in the day itself

Please advise.

Many thanks and good day!

i believe it is due to reffered otalgia auriculotemporal nerve both supplies the TM joint and outer part of ear too... you should stop jaw clenching habit... and use NSAIDS(brufen with codine) for some time like for a month... and use topical gel like froben over right TM joint

The pain May in your rt tempromendiibular joint or in your ear canal which needs proper check up . For the time being take Tab Bruges 400 mg . Often meals and don’t clean your ears.

Thank you doctors for your prompt and helpful responses. Bless you!

One more thing, the pain goes after sometime / usually few hrs or so I never really had to take any pain killers - thankfully.

I also have that clicking sound from my left side too. Like right now, if I open my mouth; the right side makes proper clicking sound and when I close it then a bit toned down sound from left side.

I try not to clench my jaw when I am awake but I think in my sleep I do it involuntarily.

Should I see a dentist or an ENT specialist for my problem?

Thank you so very much! ????????
