I have pain in my earlobe from last about a month. Showed to ENT Doctor, she said pain was due to some tooth. Shooting upwards. My dentist did an OPG. Which is clear shows no sign of any tooth problem, but the pain persists. ENT Doctor says it is Nerve pain, she suggested to have PREGABA 75, which I am taking from last 20 days. Please guide.

The nature of your pain indicates tooth problem. Sometimes OPG does not shows good image of front teeth. You need to get IOPA X- ray means dental x ray for closer and clearer image to diagnose your problem alongwith proper clinical examination. X ray

If is shooting pain onbthe face its may be nerve related. Use carbamazepine tablet 100bmg along with pre gaba. Gives you better result. If you feel good in 7 days continue the medicine. Else stop that. Dose is one tablet two times a day.
