Any accidents or trauma to neck and back?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.

What I think is you have a misalignment of the spine in the neck area which is causing pressure on-ear. You need to see a chiropractor for this.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
already seen a chiropractor everything good

Is pain is in one ear?

Right ,do you have any heart burning symptoms ? Any morning sneezing or sinusitis infections?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.

Any air tarvel in last years ?

Do you think anything aggravate these pain symptoms?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
no air travel if i get water in my ear causes more pain

Like in bath or swimming?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
shower and bath yes

I have a feeling you suffer from laxity of muscles that control your eustachian tube.

The failure of ears to maintain this pressure can result in ear pain .

Otherwise, I don't find any other reason which is affecting it.
