Has anyone else experienced ear pain caused by allergies? This has happened to me a few times. I'm wondering how common it is.
A couple of weeks ago, I developed pain in my left ear. This followed a day of intense sinus inflammation and pain, which are my typical allergy symptoms. The ear pain persisted for a week and eventually affected both of my ears. The pain worsened with certain activities like driving and going outside. Lying down lessened the pain some.
During that week, I was traveling and not able to see my primary care doctor. But I told a nurse about the ear pain the following week. I was surprised to hear the nurse had experienced something similar.
I would like to hear about others' experience with ear pain related to allergies. Do certain allergens trigger the ear pain? What do you do to ease the pain?
