Ernest syndrome arises when the stylomandibular ligament, which attaches to the jaw, becomes inflamed and produces feelings of pain in several areas of the head and neck. The ligament grows from a bone under the ear floor and attaches to the back of the lower jaw, just about one-half inch beneath the ear lobe. It limits jaw movement, keeping it from opening too wide or moving forward too much.
What are the symptoms of Ernest syndrome?
Anyone suffering from Ernest syndrome may experience one, or possibly several, forms of pain including pain in the temple area of the head (feeling like a headache in the side of head), pain and pressure in the ear, eye pain, cheekbone pain, pain in the jaw joint, throat pain or irritation during swallowing, lower jaw pain that may feel like a toothache, and even lower back pain.
Conventional medical treatments may help relieve the symptoms of Ernest syndrome, but they do not address the root of the problem. By strengthening structural weaknesses in the body, as natural medicine treatments like Prolotherapy do, pain associated with Ernest syndrome may be alleviated permanently.
