i need help please! I have been having sharp stabbing pain in both of my ears sometimes at the same time, other times only one ear at a time. The pain is so great that it causes me to get a slight headache for a while. I have gone to the ent and he says I have no ear infections. I do have some hearing loss that could have resulted from my reconstructive jaw surgery. I don't understand where this pain is coming from or why. Any clues? And if anyone has any clues on whats going on, what can I do about it?

Maybe go back to your oral surgeon then to check your jaw.. I know jaw problems can cause earaches..
