I had an accident October 10 th 2014 and hit my right side

Customer Question

I had an accident October 10 th 2014 and hit my right side of my head and ear . My problem with neck aches are resolved but the right ear is still swollen and I have trouble wearing my glasses. the back of the ear continues to hurt and the pain descends down into the neck on the right side . I am going to the specialist in Sept. Is there anything to do in the meantime ?. It has taken this long because doctors have not dealt with the ear pain .

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.

has this been diagnosed?

you need to see a neurologist and get checked for PCS
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
getting an appointment with a neurologist will take months, is there another way to investigate .? going to the outdoor clinic ?
maybe a walk -in clinic ? I already have an appoinment in Sept. to a nose/ear/throat specialist because I told my doctor in
June that my ear still hurt and I hear better in the other ear so he gave me a reference to ORL nose/ear/throat .
I'D LIKE MORE INPUT FROM DR> PHIL< HE'S VERY GOOD SO FAR . HOW DO I RATE HIM WITHOUT PAYING AGAIN ?
