my first ear infection....at age 39 lol

I have been having a pain in my upper jaw right behind my ear. I thought maybe it was my wisdom teeth (they never came in). But now I have this weird sensation several times a day in my ear like liquid is dripping in my inner ear (but there is nothing visible to me). 

The pain is worse at night and in the morning when I get up. It's been going on about 9 days.

Has anyone ever had an ear infection? Does this sound like I may have one?

What do you do for treatment? Do you think I can wait it out or go to the Doctor?

That's how mine feel. I would go to the doctor or an urgent care just in case. Don't want it to go on anymore and it end up being a bad one and rupturing your eardrum.

I had a double ear infection 2 weeks ago. It was not fun at all. Are you running fever? I had a low grade fever & also dizzy spells. My doctor gave me some antibiotics & Flonase.

 i will try to treat many things at home before heading to the dr but ear issues aren't one of them.  i rely too much on my hearing to try to self medicate any issues.
