I’m 27 yr old female. No stuffy nose. Ears feel clogged only when these attacks happen. No prolonged hours of computer or phone use. Bp seems to be normal. No phlegm. No medications. Been suffering everyday for about three weeks now. When the attacks happen yes there is difficulty opening mouth

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,possible causes may include Ear infection,Mastoiditis(inflammation of mastoid bone),TMJ disorder,Cervicogenic in origin.

You should do gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment on affected area and apply warm compresses.

Also take OTC Motrin and Claritin.

Do nasal saline spray and nasonex spray.

You should do gentle neck stretching and strengthening exercises.

If pain is getting worse over the time then visit emergency room or see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
