Outside of ear painful burning. is this related to gpn?

Lately, I've had episodes of painful burning on outside of ear --top and side of earlobe. Just wondering if this is related to gpn and if anyone else experiences this.

the pain doesn't rival my other pain in throat and deep in ear.

it's annoying and strange. it feels like a very intense sunburn.

through google search I found that burning sensation on outside of ears can be due to cranial neuralgia, but??

a new symptom tends to freak me out for a day or two. for example first time I had tongue pain. actually the pain freaks me out daily.

How are you now, bluesea? Any more burning sensations?
