Pain in ear

I am 70 years old, normally healthy but for the last 10 days I have had pain in left ear. I have had flu and a bad cold for 14 days my muscles ache and I feel nauseous. Have a pain in my left ear and have lost my sense of smell and taste, my hearing is impaired. I am very fatigued. Please advise.

Dear Heidi,


I would advise seeing an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist for the ear ache and loss of smell and taste. You may have a middle ear infection as a result of the cold and flu which needs to be treated by a doctor.

Kind regards
