Itchy ear, painful, cannot hear, feeling bubble move. Help

My ear was itchy one night and I used my nail to scratch it. After I did that, my ear got infected. The pain increases with motion or talking. I havent been able to eat without it hurting. It has affected my jaw. I cant hear in my left ear and it feels like there is a bubble in it. When I tilt my head, its like I can feel the bubble move. Please help. Your advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks for your query , Your question suggests that you are suffering from secretory otitis media because history of when you tilt your head, it looks like that you can feel the bubble move.
For to reach the near diagnosis you need to thorough examination of your ear , nose and throat with pure tone audiometry and impedance audiometry.
