this is sinus infection
as the mucus fall back in throat it goes in eustachian tubes to block it causing the problem you wrote
there is no rupture as in rupture the fluids comes out in external auditory canal
all the symptomps are typical of sinus infection
can clear by taking antibiotics for 5 days
add anti allergic to decrease mucus secretions by sinuses
sea water drops in nose bd to clear back of throat and eustachian tubes
for pain take analgesic sos
may take 10-14 days to clear the sinuses

Hi, as you are thinking it is the infection of the middle ear, probably with a hole in the middle ear. There could also be an arthritis of the temporo mandibular joint.
i advise you to consult an E.N.T.surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Thank you.
