Customer Question
I have woke up...

I have woke up with my left side of my head right behind my ear feeling swollen. No numbness or tingling. I also have two teeth on that side upper and lower sensitive to coldness

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?

Just started last night. No flu but have sinus issues at times

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

High blood pressure but on meds for that

This is a problem called mastoiditis

It is related to an infection or inflammation in your mastoid bone

You do need to see a doctor for this

It can progress rapidly and you might need oral antibiotics

I would go to an urgent care

is this helpful?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
