I have had pulsative tinnitus and major hearing loss for 1.5 years now. I was told it was allergies until a new doctor decided to look in to it further.
I started having pain & was told it was an ear infection about a month ago. 2 rounds of antibiotics & pretnasone with no improvement, Hearing test, MRI, & many doctor visits later, I finally saw an ENT yesterday. He cut a hole and drained a small amount of fluid, but not much. Then he saw what he is sure to be c-toma.
I have CT scan scheduled for Saturday & an appointment with a surgeon next month.
I have been in pain for a month now and it seems to be getting worse daily. I am taking advil 24/7 to keep it manageable.
The ENT said my ear was not sucked in and there is no hole or discharge, so it was hard to diagnose.

I haven't seen much about pain being a symptom. Has anyone else out there had severe pain? It is so frustrating and having two small kids, my patience is already running low. It is a daily struggle. I am happy to finally start getting answers, but frustrating and scary to think it is something that will take some time and possibly many surgeries to maybe fix the problem.
