I have a tender part to my neck above one of my lymph nodes

This answer was rated:

HelloI have a tender part to my neck above one of my lymph nodes which after looking at the anatomy of the neck seems to be my stylohyoid ligament on the right side. My back teeth on the same side seem to ache also and my throat and tongue feel irritated kind of like nerve pain but it’s not severe pain just aches at the moment. I’ve also been experiencing burning sensation in my ear on the same side and ringing in my ear! Please can you suggest possible causes?Many thanks

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

It seems you have either a tooth or gum infection or sore in the same area which can cause pain in lymph node and ear pain/ringing in the ear.

The following may help you;

1) Warm salt water gargle

2) Betadine gargles.

3) Ibuprofen.

You may need a course of antibiotics.
