    Can chewing gum causes ear pain ?


    External otitis such as associated with swimmer’s ear may cause this. When the external ear canal is infected, any motion of the canal may cause pain. To test this, pull down on the ear on that side. If that increases the discomfort, that is the problem. Don’t stick anything in your ear. Use a baby syringe to irrigate the ear canal gently with 50% white vinegar solution. If its not getting better in 2–3 days, see an ENT physician or your dentist. A temporomandibular joint inflammation, TMJ syndrome, may also produce pain in the ear. Grind down hard on that side and see if the pain is reproduced. If that is the case, that is the problem. In that instance stop grinding your teeth.
