My ear was blocked up for a week, went to my doctor today. He syringed it out. I had some pain earlier in the week but not in the last few. However, it's been a good few hour since it was syringed and now I have pain in that ear. Is this normal?

In brief: Probably

Since you just had the wax removed by syringe it could take a 24 hours or so for the pains to subside.
If your pain increases steadily, yellow drainage increases or you get a fever then you should see your doctor again.
