Yesterday I used earphones which fit directly into ears for a very long-time. Today I am having extreme unbearable pain in back of head and ears. I have stopped using earphones now. Is there a fast fix for this unbearable back head pain? Can I take Disprin (I never take painkillers)? I use earphones on a daily basis under the prescribed volume limits. Though I have little pain sometime but not to this extent. Please suggest any medication.
Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com.
My understanding and inference is that the pain is not related to the earphones or sound level. This is because of loud noise which usually produces classical symptoms like giddiness, ringing sound in ear, hearing loss, intolerance to loud sounds and some pain in ear.
Your symptoms are not very classical to diagnose.
Please answer below questions for clear diagnosis.
With the details available as of now, I infer that the pain is muscular most probably. For the same, I suggest you the following measures.
To understand any occurrence of sound trauma to your ears we must do a pure tone audiometry. This is the definitive investigation to understand any damage to inner ear due to sound.
I feel a strong pain killer like Aspirin is not required for these complaints. However, there is no reason to worry as of now.
