what it means when your ears are burning (spiritually and physically) with dr. jason abramowitz

You’ve probably heard the saying that when your ears burn, it means someone is talking about you.
The expression dates back to 1st-century Roman philosopher Pliny the Elder’s 37-volume encyclopedia “naturalis historia,” which mentions that “it is universally accepted that absent persons have a warning that others are talking about them , for tingling in the ears.”
Of course, sometimes there are some reasonable physical explanations for why your ears burn. But when it seems like the symptom just can’t be explained, there are spiritual meanings behind the burning ears that you can turn to.
If you think too much, you may notice that your ears tend to burn. there is a reason for this! in fact, high levels of brain activity have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow to the carotid artery, which is located on the side of the neck and causes the ear to burn.
Here’s a fun hint: any ear that’s on fire will reveal which side of your brain you’re using the most! If it’s your outer ear that’s burning, look in the mirror to see if it’s red. the skin that covers the ears can be burned like the skin of any other part of the body.
If sunburn is accompanied by fever, weakness or fainting, or low blood pressure, see a doctor right away. ear infections can cause ringing or burning in the ears. Caused by a virus or bacteria in the middle ear, symptoms of ear infections can vary but often include ear pain, a feeling of fullness in the ear, and drainage from the ear canal along with a burning sensation in the ear .
Sometimes strong emotions like shame and anger can make your ears burn. Called skin flushing, this reaction is caused by increased blood flow to the blood vessels. If this is the case, burning ears will likely be accompanied by flushed cheeks and increased body temperature. Just as an increase in body temperature can cause blood vessels to enlarge, exposure to cold temperatures can cause blood vessels to constrict.
Your ears are full of nerve endings, so “very cold air can be very irritating to them,” explains Jason Abramowitz, MD, at New York and New Jersey’s Ent and Allergy Associates, at Well+Good. this includes the eardrums, which can cause burns both inside and outside the ears.
an extremely rare disorder, red ear syndrome (res) causes a burning sensation and redness of the outer ear lasting from a few seconds to a few hours.
