If : If her pain is persisting even with pain medication, then she needs to go back to her primary for a follow up and a change in medication. By the date of this post almost a week has passed, so hopefully she is better by now, so for you and anyone reading this post no one should ever have to deal with excrutiating pain, especially because it can mean something more serious is going on. Always seek medical help in situations like this.

I would recommend going to the ER for imaging of your head. Headache and ear troubles could point to serious problems. The ER will check to assure no meningitis, bad sinus infection or other intracranial issues.
