I am sero negative diagnosed 4 years ago, not terribly well controlled since having to come off Humira. I have had very occasional shooting pains from my ear up the left side of my head, sudden but short lived. For the last 4 days these pains have been virtually constant and long lasting. Painkillers don't work. However, I've noticed that if I open my mouth wide (not easy to do) it eases slightly! I also never have any luck trying to clean my left ear, right ear has the normal gunk on cleaning. I intend trying to get an appointment with my GP tomorrow, but wondered if anyone has had similar problems.
