So for the last 3 days I have had pressure in both of my ears. It hasn't been consistently noticeable as right now they feel fine, but EVERY time I swallow my ears pop. Sometimes there is a lot more pressure in one ear than the other. The first day I also noticed the pressure in the temples as well. There hasn't be any ear trauma, so... it must be an infection? I'm considering taking some left over erythromycin. I've been taking sudafed since day one, but that doesn't seem to be helping. I have also had mild frontal head pain that usually last a short amount of time, no longer than 5 seconds, but this only happened about 4-5 times in the last 3 days.

I've been a bit dizzy, but that could just be from stressing out over this...

I also have a cavity on one of my upper back teeth, it isn't painful unless I eat something sweet, could this potentially be the cause?

I'm a little worried, especially that it might be from the cavity... any help or advice is appreciated.
