Go see your DR: There's a eustachian tube connecting the middle ear to your nasal passages which can explain your throat and ear pain. It could be from a viral, bacterial infection or allergies. Try over the counter dayquil/nyquil combo & vitamin c. If your symptoms worsen, have a check up with your dr. Take care!
