Inner ear ache with swollen glands
For a few days, I've had a pain around the top, right hand side of my jaw/inner ear. The pain is very dull, but more in my ear if i don't open my jaw to wide, but if I do the pain becomes more intense. At the same time, my glands are slightly swollen and I have bouts of nausea. Any idea as to the cause of this?

Dear Rox
You may have an inner ear infection or inflammation of the joint between the jaw and the skull. Rather let a doctor have a look as the treament will differ widely.
