Are sore throat and pressure in throat and ears a cause for concern?

I ve had a sore throat and a mild fever the past few nights. The fever seems to have cleared up and my throat is doing better, but when I tilt my head down or try to touch my toes I begin to feel a pressure in my throat, and occassionally in my ears. Is this anything I should be worried about? 22 years old, male, no medications, 210 pounds

hello,
thanks for asking to HCM
i have gone through your query, its good you got relief from the sore throat. the pressure you feel could be because of inflammation in the throat. This is because of the infection , the blood flow to the affected part increases and causes such feeling , the irritated area gets sensitized. this should go off in few days , you could use gargles with green tea, or luke warm saline water. If there is pain or the feeling doesnt go then do consult your doctor .
