Ear infection.? or not.?

Ok well, I think I may or may not have an ear infection so im asking you guys. It all started this morning when my ears popped a couple of times, then a bit latter I had sudden sharp pains in my left ear (this only happened 3 times and stopped 15 minutes later) but when I swallow or yawn, I hear this weird cracking sound behind my ears and my ears also feel a little clogged. So is this an ear infection, a symptom of the flu or just from not cleaning my ears? (my ears have not been cleaned since 2011) and I also have a mild headache.

First, you need to clean your ear properly using ear bud. If you feel pain while doing that, it is better to visit the ENT for checkup and cleaning of the ear. Without cleaning the ear properly, it is not possible to figure out the issue and after that, clean your ears from time to time.

cnd hearing solutions-The Information available shows that micro suction is an over whelming safe procedure, it’s the easiest and safest way to remove a buildup of ear wax in the ear, and
is a safe irrigation. Ear Suction Specialist in Auckland, Micro suction should not cause any pain or
discomfort, due to the sensitive nature of the ear canal, extra care is taken to avoid touching the surface
in order to prevent discomfort.
The suction can sound relatively noisy, ears are filled with nerve endings and stimulating these via
cotton bud use can trigger all sorts of visceral pleasure. Earwax usually falls out on its own. If it does not
and blocks your ear, put 2 to 3 drops of medical grade olive or almond oil in your ear 3 to 4 times a day
does this for 3 to 5 days. Difficulty in hearing is a not so uncommon problem that we all need to know
more about.
