General Ear Pain:Problems

Headache Secondary to Diseases of the Ear, Nose & Throat Headache

Introduction:In preparing notes for a lay persons web site about the ear, nose and throat causes of headache, one must appreciate that only a brief and incomplete description of the causes, clinical presentation, investigation and management of these conditions can be provided. Further information can be obtained by searching key conditions either on the web or via libraries, textbooks, scientific journals, etc, or by seeking expert advice from suitably qualified health professionals.

On no account should any individual make any assumptions about symptoms they or others have based on the general information provided at this website. Patients with persistent symptoms should always seek appropriate advice from suitably qualified health professionals.There is considerable overlap between the various health professionals in the management of patients presenting with headache and it is not uncommon for two or more experts to be involved in the care of some patients.

I hope those of you taking a look at this site find the following information useful, if not a little dry !! Remember that the objective of this site is to educate patients and other interested persons about the possible causes of headache. Don’t expect an exhaustive account about each topic.

Pain causing headache is a common symptom for which there are many causes. From the perspective of the Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon, such conditions are best described based on regional causes, i.e., the ear; nose and sinuses; and neck, including throat.
