I had really sharp, though brief, ear pain with the sore throat. In was like an awful stabbing – almost lighting both like – sensation. The pain was easily a 7/10 and was exacerbated by eating and drinking though thankfully easily controlled with Advil & Tylenol. If it wasn’t for the sore throat – and the ear ache disappearing at the same time as the sore throat – I would have thought this to be MS induced. (The Dr. indicated there was fluid on the ear most likely causing the pain.) I figured this relates to MS because it really underlines my continued frustration with what is MS and what isn’t. I’ve almost always sorted out in the end which are MS and which aren’t MS symptoms but not always and sometimes it takes a while.
