Ear infection: Those symptoms you describe are worrisome for an infection in the ears, which in the context of a bad cold is common. Ears not only let us to listen but they also coordinate with eyes and brain to maintain balance and let us have a sense of location. You should visit a doctor, because this probably needs to be treated with antibiotics
