Pressure behind eye from ear infection, is this related?

Not directly. In many cases of otitis media there is also a sinus infection which can be felt as pressure behind the eye. The ear infection itself cannot cause pressure behind the eye.
Yes. Otitis media, or a middle ear infection results in pus behind the eardrum. As a result, pressure builds up. If you have an ear infection you will need Motrin and antibiotics.

You . You need an exam to determine what kind of infection you have. You could either have an outer ear infection (also known as swimmer's ear) or you could have a middle ear infection with a burst ear drum causing the sudden drainage. Since both of those need antibiotic treatment, you should go see a doctor. Good luck! Read more...

Is it normal for an inner ear infection to make your head feel like it's under pressure?

Yes. Normally, air at the same pressure is present on both sides of the ear drum. With an inner ear infection, the space behind the ear drum is closed off to the outside, allowing fluid, infection, and pressure to build up. Once the infection clears, everything usually returns to normal. See your doctor if the pressure remains. Read more...
