Shooting ear pain after root canal

User Profile
Hi, I had a Root canal and quite high filling. I could not tell due to the numbness and its been 2 weeks due to christmas holidays. Now, i am getting a shooting ear pain. I guess it is due to the high filling and change in the bite. Since, it is 2 weeks, I hope this is not very late and this can be corrected? Can you advice me if this will get sorted out once after the correction? I am not having any pain in the tooth, but shooting ear pain and also mild hearing loss. Worried a lot on this front as I am not able to concentrate on my work.
Any advice here would be appreciated!!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Ear pain with hearing loss should be evaluated for local ear infection and should be managed accordingly. Consult a doctor and let them have a look.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
