      Hi Kayla -

      When a doctor describes an eardrum as being "dull," it can be a sign of fluid build-up in the middle ear, which can be incredibly painful. Without evaluating you myself, I really have nothing more to add except that even if you have to pay out of your own pocket to see an ENT on an urgent basis (and bypass the NHS), then that's what I would do.
