Every few days I am experiencing ear pain. I've had ear issues for years (though I've never gotten it checked out). Sometimes I would wake up at night and my ear would be in severe pain. I assumed I slept on it and it was bent funny.

Other times I experience bad ear aches if too much wind gets in my ear. This is especially true in winter. Now I'm just experiencing this pain every few days but not because of wind or anything. I assume I should just see a doctor about this but was wondering if anybody has experienced this? I still have my thyroid and just started levothyroxine a week or so ago.

This was one of my problems/symptoms prior to my thyroidectomy. The nodule was pressing against a nerve. It caused no permanent damage, just severe discomfort.

Could be. My ENT even took a Deetta look and everything with the ear was clear.

My ear pain went away after surgery. I still have some sensitivity to loud noises, wind and cold.

I had the same experience as maryanne. My biggest relief was to finally be rid of the neck and ear pain and headaches, post op.

Pre diagnosis, I was getting air pressure in my ears that was so painful. I kept having to clear my ears, like when scuba diving. I kept complaining about it. No one knew what it was one.
One ENT surgeon said my Eustachian tube opening was too open.
Now, after surgery, I would occasional a little air pressure in my ears to a lot less severity and very infrequently, unlike before surgery.
Still have no idea why, sure as hell am grateful for it.
