Can pain in my ears and head be caused by exposure to the cold?
Patient : My ears, head, and eyes hurt. My ears have random sharp pains. My head just somewhat hurts on my left side. My eyes itch and have a dull ache. I was wondering if this is due to being out in the cold and snow for a while today? But the pain started at least two hours after I got back inside. I wore a hat over my ears while I was outside too. I also feel light-headed. Should I be worried?
