As per your query you have symptoms of throat pain, ear pain and hoarse voice which is due to upper respiratory tract infection along with eustachian tube dysfunction.

Need not to worry about it. Visit ENT specialist once and get some routine blood investigation done. Go for otoscopic examination and start treatment accordingly. I would suggest you to
- Gargle warm saline rinses.
- Take diet rich in multivitamins.
- Avoid carbonated beverages and drink plenty of water as well.
- You should take the proper course of antibiotics along with anti-inflammatory medications as well.

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