Our expert says:
This kind of ear pain often comes from the TM joint between the jaw and the skull. Try using anti-inflammatories like Neurofen, a muscle relaxant like Norflex (or Norflex Co that contains panado too). Try taking Biral 2 three times a day for a calming effect or ask your doctor for a prescription for something stronger if it doesn't help. Do some jaw exercises yourself: http://www.ehow.com/how_2352238_cure-tmj-jaw-exercises.html
Avoid hard/chewy foods for a week (biltong, died fruit, tough meat, lettuce!, apples etc)
