In brief: Post ear ache

May be mastoiditis which is like sinusitis ( it s in the bone behind the ear).
May need antibiotics and also treatment of GERD/ reflux. Would also check if you have GERD for H pylori a bacteria that can complicated GERD. H pylori can be diagnosed by blood test or breath test . Consder GI/ ENT follow up . Would also ask about TMJ .Avoid GERd triggers , alcohol smoking, spicy/fatty foods, caffein
