    I know that a lot of earache isn't actually caused by an ear infection or any problem within the ear, it can be caused by referred pain from your jaw which you can clench a lot when stressed and the pain shoots up into your ear. The same thing happens to me when I am stressed. I clench my teeth and jaws without realising it and end up with agonizing earache which is worse than any ear infection I have had so yeah, in a way stress can sometimes cause earache. Its worth getting your ear checked over though just in case you do have an infection going on.

    Thanks, I've just done my first exam.

    The doctor said he couldn't see an infection but has given me some ear drops.
