HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Your symptoms are in keeping with an upper respiratory tract
infection. These are usually viral.
Because these infections can involve the nasal passages, sinuses
, throat and ears, alot of different symptoms can occur. It is possible to have discomfort in the ear due to abnormal function of the eusthacian tube as a result of an acute viral illness.
In some cases however persons may have a bacterial infection along with the viral illness.
If the pain in your ear is severe, you may want to be assessed to rule out a bacterial infection.
I hope this helps
