Q.

Oor pyn en kakebeen wat haak

Ek het nou al amper 'n jaar 'n probleem met 'n kakebeen wat klak en klap. Ek kners op my kiestande - my regter oor bly seer. Ekstrale wys niks fout. Die oorpyn is erg en dit voel soms of my oor "slaap"

Hi Alma

I am sorry to hear about your ear pain, to have had it for almost a year can be very upsetting!

Have you visited your dentist? Sometimes ear pain can be linked to dental problems, particularly if it involves the jaw.  If they say there is nothing wrong there (perhaps helping you with your teeth-grinding may help?) then perhaps consult an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist to investigate other causes of your ear pain.

I hope that you feel better soon.
