Ear popped and now hurts when swallowing, help?
My left ear started to pop whenever I swallow for around a day. I thought little of it because I'd just come home from a higher altitude. I was sitting around watching tv when my ear popped suddenly while I swallowed.
Now my ear hurts whenever I swallow (I can open my jaw just fine, though yawning is troublesome). I have no fever, no ear dranage, and my right ear is perfectly fine. I haven't stuck anything into my ears and no ear pain prior to today.
What do I have? Any clues?
