Dear Dany

You are most likely suffering from a throat infection, with either referred pain to the ear, or pain due to eustachian tube dysfunction. It is also possible to suffer from a earinfection as well, as all the structures are closely related.
You should see your doctor, as a diagnosis must be made, and you may require antibiotics. Sometimes one can only treat the symptoms if a viral cause is suspected, but your doctor needs to examine you to make that diagnosis.
