Middle Ear Infection and Jaw pain

I was diagnosed with middle ear infection 10 days ago, ear ache is 90% gone but my left jaw is still very sensitive, is this normal - i was on antibiotics and finished that a while ago already. Must i go see the doctor again perhaps?

Dear Lisa
If the symtoms are not cleared up 100% I think your doctor should have another look at your ear. There may be some inflammation still, or the pain could be due to something else like a swollen gland or inflamed TM joint (between the jaw and the skull)
