I am 9 months post radiation treatments to my sinus's and right lymphs in my neck and I still battle ear pain. Sometimes its like someone is sticking an ice pick in my ear. My doc says the same thing as yours did, doesnt give me much information on when it will stop, if ever. I try and deal with it or take over the counter meds, but sometimes I do have to take a prescription pain pill as last resort to relieve the pain.

You and me both. I hate taking pain pills and try to avoid it as much as possible. I wish it would just stop and go away. Soon hopefully it will.
