Her ear pain is really triggered by any amount of cold air that gets in and also from eating any spicy foods. Avoiding spicy entrees is easy but we live in Minnesota and she feels like a prisoner in her own home for six months out of the year because going outside in the cold and wind causes her so much pain. She has been to several doctors and they all want to prescribe pain medication which she has adverse effects to. Really, at this point I am just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to prevent her from having such horrible pain. I have looked on line and found that others that have had radiation to the oral cavity also suffer from this severe ear pain so if there is anyone out there who knows what she is going through and has a suggestion for us we'd love to hear it. Also, she can't wear ear muffs or ear plugs because the sound that it makes from covering her ear also hurts.
