Hello. Inner ear is partly responsible for maintenance of body balance. Viral fevers can sometimes involve inner ear. Since you had prominent dizziness and also ear ache, so this possibility has to be considered. Similar features can occur with involvement of middle ear too. If problems are transient and already improving, you can wait and watch. If any new problem comes up or the current problems increase than prompt medical attention is needed to manage it. Good luck.
