What causes sore throat and ear ache?

Hi. I am a 30 year old male. For the last 2 days I have had a sore throat that seems to hurt on one side only. The pain seems to be mostly around by upper-left throat / tongue area, and my left ear is also beginning to hurt. I hurts most when I swallow. Any idea what this could be?

Hello,

Eustachian tube blockage caused by nasal congestion or throat infection can cause ear ache. Please tell me what medicines have you been taking so far so that I can suggest you better.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Priyanka Aggarwal
