I have difficulty swallowing because every time I swallow, it feels like I am tearing on my ear and
it triggers the pain. Also, when I brushed my hair and
got to a certain point on my skull, it hurt, and although it was far from my ear, the pain felt similar. Moreover, when I touch my ear it triggers the pain as well, but it doesn't feel as intense as when I swallow. If I don't touch my ear or swallow, there is no pain.
