    Hi Nancy,

     

    I just wanted to let you know that I experience more difficulties with my ears than before MS, but I'm not exactly sure how they might be related.

     

    My ears ring alot more and louder than ever before.  Loud sounds literally hurt and sometimes I prefer silence. 

     

    Certainly the nerves supplying the ears can be affected by MS.  This would be a good question to ask your doctor next time you go in, especially if it gets worse.

    That's a good question Nancy.  I also experience ear pain and sensitivity and I blame it on my MS.  This probrably didn't help but I just wanted to say I experience the same thing too.

    Thanks for your question Nancy.  I was not able to find information specifically addressing ear pain in our MS material.  However, in our Multplie Sclerosis Symptoms section, many of the manifestations of the disease target the face and eyes as well as sensitivity and numbness anywhere on the body.  So it is entirely possible that your ear pain is associated with the MS. Of course you would want to rule out any other reason for the ear pain, so speaking with yor doctors seems prudent.

     

    Hope this helps and all the best, sue
