Oct 15, 2018 · extreme outer ear pain in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

OK, that's different from the pain I have. Mine isn't really outer ear pain, but 'pain at the ear canal opening area caused by touching or moving the outer ear '- even lifting eyebrows or smiling could cause discomfort but, touching the outer ear in anyway that moves it is extremely painful. Happens a few times a year, usually on the side on which I've been sleeping. Goes away after a few minutes to hours, or, recently, after doing some head/neack stretching. Lost my wisdom teeth in my late teens.
You may very well get some relief from meloxicam or need to be tested for polychondritis or some neuralgia????

Interesting idea on the ear plugs.
Do your ears get red and warm to the touch? If you were to pinch the lobe or the top part of the ear, without shifting the ear's position, would there be pain? Or is the pain in/around the ear canal/opening when you shift or push the outer ear?

saraan – is your ear red and warm? Does the condition last for days? If so, you might consider Nibor's suggestion. But my ear cartilage pain has no other symptom than pain. Usually a vague to moderate ache, but with extreme pain when touched or even moved with smiling or eyebrow lifting etc. may be gone in 30 minute to half a day. Have only had longer period of time once. But, extreme stretching of the head neck has been marvelous at clearing the problem the last few times I have tried it. Be sure to include tilting the head back while smiling broadly and maybe even rolling the eyes back in the head. Still in the experimental satge with this technique since it can be months between 'attacks'. good luck

There is a thread about this issue at the Straightdope Forum site that was started in 2004. Although it also contains folks that seem to be suffering from migraines, TMJ, neuralgia, otitis media/externa and other seemingly unrelated issues – it is where I read about the eye/head up/back stretching approach to relief. Posting a direct link is prohibited but you could try a search at that site. it's titled Ear cartilage pain?

Been suffering from this 1 to 4/5 times a year for decades. Since a teen, am now 63 yo. Recently, had 90% success with relief 10 minutes or so after extreme stretching of the head up/back with eyebrow, mouth, and jaw stretching.
