About six months ago my cellphone was damaged and i bought a new one since then when i make or receive a call i get headache and earache that lasts for close to three hours. Does anyone of you have had the same experience while using cellphone?

Thats quite strange. I have not had this before. i do find though, that if I am on my cell for too long, my ear is really hot afterwards because the phone tends to heat up. this could be a contributing factor. Also, have you got the volume turned up too loud? You may want to try turning it down a bit. Alternatively, you could always grab a cheap $10 phone and try that for a few weeks and see if it gets any better. It could just be the sound balance of the handset itself that your ear cant adjust to.

What kind of cellphone do you have? I suggest to don't use made in chine phones like Iphone copy because they are not safety and they produce a lot of damage radiation. not good for health.

I cannot say really if my headaches can be atrributed to my use of phone. But i guess u will be more conscious now and see if that is true.

Hi Udaypette! Try to make an appointment with your E.N.T doctor. Maybe it is not only because of the cellphone. But by using it, it triggers something in your ears that causes the earache and headache. It could be an underlying ear infection, hopefully. Because sometimes, pain related to our ear can be also associated with our brain, because the vestibulo-cochlea of our ear, with the brain helps us in our balance. And maybe there is a mass that has formed inside. I don't want you to worry. Just have a check up to clear things out. Take care and welcome to Mylot! (^^,)
