Customer Question

I am suffering excruciating waves of pain. I thought at first was ear ache but have been taking ear drops for five days. The pain is multiples more intense. The pain is about 4 inches above my left ear. I had a hard hit to my right temple 9 days ago. Dr. Did CT scan but didn't show anything.... It was without contrast. I am seriously afraid that I may hv a blood clot
JA: Are you experiencing any dizziness? Do you have a fever?
Customer: No dizziness.... Low grade fever.
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I know of. He is aware of family history of strokes. The pain has kept me (and my husband) up the past three nights as pain has increased.
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.

Thank you for your question.

How long after the hit in the temple has he started to have this pain?

Does he have any other medical problems?

Is he on any medications for anything else?

Please let me know.
