Ear pain and jaw ache/Are these menopause symptoms?
I am wondering if ear ache or ear pain along with jaw pain can be a menopause symptom?
I have had both intermittently for two years and neither ENT or Maxiofacial consultants can find a reason for my pain.
I do have some other perimenopausal symptoms so wondered if anyone has experienced this?

@laasyasri We have estrogen receptors all over our bodies including our jaw. Joint pain is common in peri. It is certainly a plausible reason for your problem if you have been seen by various specialists who haven't found anything. It can also be linked with anxiety which is also common in perimenopause. Do you clench your jaw a lot? Try and keep your jaw as relaxed as possible and maybe try eating a softer diet for a few weeks and see if it helps. Can't offer much in regards to the ear pain. This could be referred pain in your jaw. Hope it settles for you soon, take care.
