Rob asks: 'Does anyone deal with extreme ear pain! I have both RA and PR. My pain level easily reaches a 7 or 8 when it starts (2-3 times a month and sometimes more). It's hard to explain to the doctor without the doctor looking at me like I have 3 heads. The last time I told him of this pain, he sent me for a brain scan.'


  • I went to the doctor for what I thought was ear pain. It was't it was jaw pain TMJ!!!! You can feel the synovial fluid build up on the jaw line near the edge of the ear. Had xrays done and it was confirmed my jaw bone where the upper and lower meet is eroding, starting to have blunt edges. It is horrible pain. I usually take a pain pill and try to sleep it off for a bit
  • @AlyssaWinegarden Don't know where my reply went, but I posted a comment
