Why does my ear hurt so bad?
My ear started hurting really bad yesterday. I used earbuds the day before (the kind that come with the iphone 5.) I dont know if that would have anything to do with it. My left ear really hurts whenever something toches it, I open my mouth wide, or chew. My ear started hurting when I woke up yesterday morning. I couldn't sleep last night until I took pain killer. The last time I swam was saturday (about 5 days ago.) My other ear is fine. It wasn't as bad in the morning yesterday but it got worse at night(after I used the hydrogen peroxide) The internet said to let it soak for 20 minutes, so thats what i did. Could it be an ear infection? The only time it hurts us when it touches something. I thing the pain is mainly on the inside of the ear.
