I've been having inner ear pain a week now, No, my ear hurts

Customer Question

Hi, I've been having inner ear pain for almost a week now,
JA: Are you experiencing any dizziness? Do you have a fever?
Customer: No, my ear hurts when I swallow and I can barely talk because it hurts to stimulate moving my ear...I guess.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nope
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

This is Dr. David

how old are you?

inner ear pain can be due to inner ear infection or fluid.

you need to see a doctor who can look inside of your ear.

you may need a course of antibiotics

you should go to an urgent care center or ER

there they have doctors who can look in your ear to check for inner or ear canal infections

let me know if you have questions.
