Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

This is a common symptom after a piercing , due to the pressure effect some discomfort will be there in the throat as well , i advise you to take a pain killer for now and wait for a couple of days , avoid collection of water in the ear and prevent cold exposure.

If there is throat irritation and pain , do warm saline gargles for 3 to 4 times a day
