ear infection?

Arielle

I've had a bad sore throat for a week and the last three days have an horrible pain in my left ear, no fever no drainage, just hurts inside like bad aching, when I slightly put my finger in it; it also hurts. my husband seems to think it's not an ear infection since I don't have a fever, can you have an ear infection without a fever present? because of my sore throat I've been taking lots of Tylenol and ibuprofen for days, could that be a reason for preventing my fever?

cuz I can only go to the clinic tomorrow or wait till Monday and I dont wanna wait to long and end up in sheer pain feeling worse
