High pulse rate, ears feeling clogged. Sign of ear infection? Should I drain out ear?

Hi, a few months ago I had a sinus infection/ inner ear infection of some sort. It came on quickly with my ears feeling clogged followed my SEVERE pain and ringing. I rushed to urgent care where they drained my ear and prescribed me amoxicillin . After that there was slight ringing for a while after. Today, I went to donate blood and they wouldn t allow me because my pulse was an alarming 137 at a resting state. When I came home my ears felt clogged, and it is continuing to get worse. A ringing in my right ear(left ear last time) and it is beginning to get very uncomfortable. I have heard that a high pulse can be a sign of inner ear infection. Should I go to the doctor, or simply flush out my ear? It feels very similar to what it was last time

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

The high pulse would occur if there is a fever associated with an ear infection or if there is significant pain.
If the ear is extremely painful, it would cause an increase in the rate though 137 is very high.
In view of the elevated rate, it would be best for you to see your doctor for a full examination.

Hope this helps
