Brief Answer:
Please consult laryngologist.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms can be caused by ear congestion, or ear inflammation. It can be a consequence of recent upper respiratory tract infection.
As it is very close from ear to brain, please do not wait with it.
Please consult laryngologist. Ear examination is necessary. Antibiotic may be prescribed.

Hope this helps.
