Hello. Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Although it isn't possible to diagnose your condition without an examination, it sounds like you've developed a case of acute otitis media
(a middle ear infection
). Although there are a few viruses that can cause otitis media, your history is consistent with a secondary bacterial infection. This occurs when you catch a cold
or flu, which causes congestion in your upper airways and occludes the tubes that normally ventilate your middle ear chambers (the Eustachian tubes). This situation creates an environment within your middle ears that is favorable to bacterial growth
media usually requires antibiotic treatment. In addition, you might need a medication to control your pain until your infection subsides. I suggest you see your doctor as soon as possible to confirm your diagnosis and begin treatment.
I hope that helps, and good luck!
