I'm sorry you're going through this. Pain is never fun!

I would urge you to get in to see your doctor as soon as possible. What you're describing does not sound like a migraine at all, but it could possibly be an ear infection. In rare cases, an untreated ear infection can move into the bone behind the ear. This normally happens in children and is called mastoiditis.

No matter what the underlying cause of this pain is, the fact it's ongoing and seems to be getting worse means you need medical attention. If you can't get an office visit, it's probably time for a visit to urgent care.

Feel better!
