In brief: Why not see your doc

If it is that bad and bothering you much, you should check-in with your doc.
Ear infection can cause such symptoms. Since you have sensitivity to noise, I am concerned for possible early shingle in the ear--ramsay hunt syndrome..Which is a reactivation of chicken pox and can be treated...So, consult your doc..Good luck.
