The pain that comes with ear infections can be terrible.  Yes, what you describe does suggest that you have infection of your ears and perhaps your sinuses.  Most ear infections in adults are caused by bacteria and it is likely that you will need antibiotic therapy to cure this infection.  Until you can see your doctor, you might want to take a nasal decongestant to facilitate drainage from your ears and sinuses.

Good luck.
