one sided headache and ear infection?

for almost a month now, i have been experiencing left sided headaches with pressure and ear pain. i have been to the doctor three times, who said it was an ear infection and eustachian tube dysfunction. i have taken prednisone and augmentin and was prescribed ear drops. while i feel better, i do not feel 100%. the pains in my head are intermittent, and it sometimes feels worse when i bend over. i am also a person who is always congested due to year-round allergies. i scheduled an appointment with an ENT but i am just nervous! help!

Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Aside from the ear issues or medicine side effect, one sided headaches may also be attributed to primary headaches such as migraine. Nasal congestion due to allergies may also be contributing and it is good that you are scheduled to see your ENT  for proper management. Drinking plenty of fluids, avoiding the possible triggers and antihistamine medications may also help.  Take care an do keep us posted.
