Hi, Ive just woken up due to quite severe pain in my ear/throat.

This answer was rated:

Hi, I've just woken up due to quite severe pain in my ear/throat. It feels like my inner ear is under pressure/nearly throbbing, when I swallow I get a pain in the back of my jaw/top if my throat/ear. I've had a milder version of these symptoms since Sunday. I got 2 fillings last Friday , but the there is no gum pain (when I feel it), so I don't think it's related to that. Can you please help. Thsnks, Lenzie, male, 39 yrs, normally very healthy.
