Frequently, a severe cough can cause strain on muscles. This strain may be limited to chest muscles, but can involve the neck muscles. The posterior neck muscles connect to the skull behind the ear, so neck muscle strain or spasm can result in posterior ear and ear pain. READ MORE
Yes. tmj issues can be chronic. The tmj anatomically is next to the ear canal. Thus, frequently cracking and popping sounds can be heard in the ear. The question is what is causing the tmj. Teeth grinding/clinching? Dental procedures or manipulations ? Chewing gum/ hard candy? Stress? All can be factors. Treatment is available and does help. Simple anti inflammatory such as Motrin, warm compresses, dental soft diet, short term steroids such as prednisone. There are mouth guards and/or oral appliances that can be purchased or fitted to your teeth/mouth. Often these are available from dentists. Hope this helps! READ MORE
