It sounds like you may have fluid in your ears creating the pressure and they can be or become infected. With the symptoms that you have (I am concerned about the fever), you do need to be seen by the doctor. Leaving an infection untreated can make matters worse for you. You can go to a walk in clinic and have the doctor look in your ears and prescribe the necessary medication. In the meantime, put warm cloth or heating pad to your ears, take tylenol for pain, drink plenty of water, take an over the counter decongestant and see if you it relieves the fluid in your ears, thus relieving the pressure)
I strongly recommend a visit to the doctor at this point and with your symptoms.
If you have an infection, then, yes you will feel better once you start taking antibiotics. Eat mild foods at this time, avoiding anything spicy or greasy. Drink warm tea, coke or gingerale to help reduce nausea.
There are local clinics that treat patients on a walk-in basis withou needing an appointment or being a regular patient. A popular one is called Urgent Care. You can find these in the phone book under clinics. If you give me your city and zip code, I will look for you.
