The last week the back of my skull and neck has been so sore. I don't feel glands but I want to rip this head off. That would be a blessing instead of the torment it's given me. The bone on the side of ear on both sides is so painful, neck. Due for period, doxy, smilax, IM SO TIRED, like all of you. Llmd Monday, llnd Thursday, when it's mental, you ask for physical, if youre lucky enough you get both. Going for bloods tomorrow. Why would a bone be sore? Thanx for listening to me. Help.

Are your ears painful or full and popping?

Mastoiditis is an infection of the mastoid process, that bone behind the ear.

It's most commonly caused by an ear infection.

Be sure to tell your doc, and don't be afraid to go to Urgent Care if it continues.

Do you have a fever?

I experience pain in those exact locations periodically. I had it much more frequently before my DX of Lyme Disease. I think that is where the spirochetes have done most of their damage.

I had sudden hearing loss in my left ear followed by roaring tinnitus a year before my DX of Lyme Disease. I have also lost half of my balance functioning on the same side.

Do you have any symptoms of hearing loss, tinnitus or balance problems? If you do, you should mention to your LLMD. I am taking a high dose of Valtrex (1 mg 2 x day) and Lysine (1500 mg per day) to try and reverse auditory/vestibular damage. I think it is helping.

My LLMD has told me to take ibuprofen when the head pain is unbearable. I had to take yesterday and it helped.

I have never had a brain spect scan but I bet if I did, there would be evidence of problems with blood flow in my brain. I am going to ask for one at my next visit with LLMD.

Feel free to PM me if you would like to discuss more. Good luck.

No vertigo except when I first started foxy. That's gone. This morning isn't as bad still deperonalized. I hate this. Soul less is the word.
