HI I have gone through your mail and as you said that few days back you were having toothache as you relief from toothache your throat became sore and start hurting you after some time as throat stop hurting you developed fullness or blockade in left ear which is not relieved even after irrigating the ear with water and sweeping it out. As you tried to burp you feel severe pain.After considering your symptoms in chronological order I am suspecting that your sore throat has given rise to blockade of eustechian tube (tubular connection between throat and ear) thus you developed fullness & blockade in ear and this ultimately lead to earache and impairment of hearing .you are now advice to consult an E.N.T.specialist who will do your clinical examination and if needed some investigations to reach the correct diagnosis than only treatment can be plan.Thanks.
