Dear Stuffy head
I know this sounds really strange but I have a hunch that the earache, pressure in the head and sore jaw could be due to TM joint inflammation ( you may be gnashing your teeth unconsciously) The TM joint sits just in front of your ear and is the joint between your jaw and the skull. If you put your finger in your ear and press to the front you actually touch the joint and can feel if it is sore. You can also feel the joint space just in front of your ear. Let your dentist or a physiotherapist look at this joint. If there are signs of inflammation, you may need to get physiotherapy and a "biteplate" to sleep with. Using an anti-inflammatory medication and something to relax you at night is also valuable.
