Yes: Ear pain can be VERY SEVERE! It can travel to neck, shoulder as well jaw and make sleeping, eating and thinking appropriately very difficult. If having ear pain u shd see ur doctor ASAP. It in doubt regarding some other diagnosis u shd see the doctor right away as well esp if u r worried about heart conditions.
