In brief: Your ear will hurt.
An earache is just what it sounds like - your ear will hurt.
Ear pain is caused by many different things - a change in pressure, an infection, wax in the ear. If your ear is hurting, and especially if you have a fever or it's lasting for a few days, you should see your physician.
