Wisdom Teeth

My top two wisdom teeth are growing in.  I am experiencing alot of pain & having a hard time hearing.  My ears ache and I feel alot of drainage down my throat.  I have a slight fever but nothing too extreme. I am having difficulty sleeping. I had my bottom two removed about a year ago.  Do I need to go to see a doctor and get the top two removed,  or just ride it out?

I do not recommend riding this out. Pain, hearing changes, drainage and fevers are a way of your body telling you something is wrong. Although this might very well be unrelated to your upper wisodom teeth, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible.
