In brief: Yes

A middle ear infection usually follows some triggering event, like a cold,allergies or the flu.
The ear pain may just be fluid or pressure. If it doesn't fade soon I would have it examined.Sometimes a heat source held over the affected side of the head can diminish the pain sensation.
