ear echo

when i was a child i got ear infections regularly that were very painful. as I grew older i no longer felt the ear infections, my doctor said it was because of all the scar tissue. I am 28 now and when I woke up this morning at 4:30am my left ear hurt just like it did when I was a child. I took two asprin and one prescription ibuprofen. thankfully the pain became mild enough that I could go back to sleep. I am now awake again, it is 8:26am and sure enough, I hear an echo(not quite an echo but this is the best term to describe).
