Maybe solved the mystery.
« on: March 02, 2014, 09:37:14 AM »
Ok so I have been posting the past few weeks because of ear pain and a swollen lymph node behind my ear.  Well the Dr said I had fluid on my ear and gave me sudafed.  When that didn't work he gave me antibiotics.  The pain still comes and goes and also hurts around my ear. But yesterday while eating lunch a tiny piece of my very back upper molar/wisdom tooth broke off. I went to the bathroom to check it out and there is a cavity in that tooth that is HUGE! There is almost 1/4 of my tooth missing. It's not very swollen around the gum but kinda tender just above the tooth. Could this be causing all the pain in and around the ear and the swollen lymph node right behind the ear on the same side?

I would say yes, definitely. But best to check with your dentist. You need to get that molar taken care of, regardless.

Oh yes! I'm calling the dentist tomorrow.  I was just wondering if that could cause the swollen lymph node.

It could cause the swollen lymph node if it's infected in any way.   I guess even if it's NOT infected, I mean after all, ALLERGIES could cause swollen lymph nodes with nothing infected.

The gum up above it is pretty sore to touch. Would that imply some infection?

If it's just sore it is an inflammation and not an infection. An inflammation can cause a swollen lymph node and the placement of the tooth and lymph node måles it almost certain

The lymph node is probably an inch and a half away from the tooth
