Itchy ears

Jan 09, 2017 2:34 PM

Hi I'm having a bit of a flare up after a busy but fun festive period. I've noticed that I get very itchy ears as my pain and fatigue get worse. Does this happen to anyone else?

Me.. Not sure what causes it but it's sure annoying.. Sorry you are dealing with that.

My ears do itch but I'm not sure why that is. It doesn't seem to corrolate with my flares or anything. I get a lot of water in my ears because I have very long hair and it takes longer to wash it every day. I attribute mine to that. I suppose I could be wrong.

I have allergies that cause mine. But I get trigeminal neuralgia too that causes it sometimes, when I get tingling up the side of my face.

I have that tingling.. it's a new thing though. It's coming from my head and down my face and it tingles and burns and then my top lip, part of my tongue and my throat start to feel numb. It's weird and I'm forgetting words and where I put things. I hid my meds because I had to leave and I don't necessarily trust people not to go in my room. At any rate, I was going into withdrawals because I couldn't find them to take them. If it wasn't for my bff keeping me sane and loving me as much as she does, I would have had a meltdown. Found them obviously. I'll have to see if the itch comes with that feeling.
Thinking of you Flappsy!! Hope all is well. Sending lots of warm {{Hugs}} your way. 💕🤗

Yes. My ears are itching, crusty, sticky and weeping. It blocks my ears and makes me quite dizzy.

Thanks for your replies. Should have said I have Fibro and ankylosing spondylitis.. haven't been on app for a few days as been very sleepy, though had an excellent day on Friday so very thankful for that.
