Have ongoing pain in left ear and eye for few months. Today I awakened with crust and discharge in left eye. Is this all possibly connected?

In brief: Agreed that you

should see your doctor.
There can be a connection between ear pain (from infection) and conjunctivitis (which it sounds like you may have); there is a type of bacteria that can cause both at the same time.
