Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am not fat, but my body gets really warm sometimes especially when I sleep, which makes me uncomfortable. So, what might be the reason?Secondly, I get pain near my left ear when I open my mouth. Three weeks ago, the pain went after four days (it started and ended when I woke up after sleep). Again, the same pain came this week, but this time on the right side. Lately, I found my both hand fingers are shivering sometimes but most of the time, I have that feeling even if they do not. Why?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Are you suffering from an allergy?

If the ear pain is arising during the opening of the mouth at ear area it may be arising from temporomandibular joint. Middle ear infection or eustachian tube block may also give rise to pain in the ear. But in your history, you did not mention clogged ears.

Tremors may be due to some decongestant drugs or beta agonists or it may be due to familial tremors. Avoid cool drinks and cold water, avoid allergens. Use water vapor inhalation.

I suggest taking tablet Alday-DC (Cetirizine) twice a day for five days.

Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

If symptoms not improved, please consult your ENT specialist. He will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care.
