About two or more weeks ago I started noticing there was a tightness behind my left ear. It has been getting worse day by day. I feel like I have to tilt my head to the left to ease the tightness. It is very irritating and I was wondering if anyone has had this before. I went to the doctor last week, and she said that it was a strained muscle in my neck that was caused by holding the phone with my shoulder. I do that alot at work. This past week I have been trying to hold the phone in the other ear, and rubbing my neck and behind my ear, but it seems to be getting worse, not better. My coworker told me to go back and get a second opinion. It makes me feel like I am sick, or getting sick. Also, when I touch behind my ear it feels like a lump, or just really tight or swollen, and it is just on my left ear. Has anyone ever heard about this or experienced this at all???? Please respond if you do. Thank you
I have also had a tightless behind both ears but my left ear is the worst. It's like alittle ball between my ear,just in front the tendon to the neck and just behind the lower jaw bone. It is worse when I get a cold and I do have sinus troubles due to allergies. Did you find out what yours was from yet???
