I’ve been to numerous doctors in attempts to diagnose the severe pain I have been experiencing in my ear and throat. It’s funny how they all want it to be the same thing and try to force a label on it that just doesn’t fit because they don’t know what it is. Calling Dr. House!
I finally ended up with a neurologist who was willing to look beyond my healthy ear and non-TMJ riddled jaw. He diagnosed me with Glossopharyngeal neuralgia and prescribed medication before even scheduling the MRI to check the severity. Very House-like, no?
What does this all mean? I’m adjusting to the medication, still having pain, and trying to work. Oh, and clean my house, do laundry, take care of the family… the usual. Hopefully, within a month I’ll be in better shape. Cross your fingers for me, will you?
