What causes severe headache along with earache?

I don t really have a question, just trying to determine whether I have the common cold or sinus infection, or the flu? I am told that sometimes they can have the same symptoms. My head hurts really back and when i touch the bridge of my nose it hurts with a lot of throbbing. My head hurts all over. My ears are hurting but then again not hurting, if that makes any sense? I think that pain might be coming from the pain in my head. I am really really tired. My eyes hurt, but again could be coming form my head. I get headaches but this headache is NOTHING like my normal headaches. It is more like I am I am coming down with something? What do you think? With Thanksgiving just around the corner I don t want to assume it is nothing and then it get worst.

dear user

symptoms of hedache and earache and nasal pain refer to having common cold or sinusitis infection or ear infection that should be examined for diagnosis

you need to see your doctor as you may need to be examined clinically for the cause
common cold can cause these symptoms and also if you had any bacterial infection
if symptoms persist and prolonged you should do ct scan of brain

try to drink alot of fluids and refer to ent specialist firstly to examine ear and nose that may cause these symptoms

hope that helps you
