Possible natural remedies for ear issues...
Depending on what hurts the most...

With earaches/mouth pain, I can't stand total silence. I don't realize that's the problem at first, but when it's silent my mind focuses on the pain. If you can stand having some background noise, maybe try that (I had a noise machine - so static noise/waterfalls was easy to get).

I've tried, put a cup of salt in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. Use coarse salt and dump it into a thick sock. The sock is to prevent burns. Apply the sock to the painful ear and it can draw fluid out of the ear.

Get a washcloth full of hot water and wring it out. Hold this onto the ear until it cools. The moist heat will increase the circulation in the ear, thereby reducing the swelling and pain.

Gum chewing may help relieve pressure in the ear, and the pain from the pressure.

(Just some ideas.)

Shot of Jack Daniels and a vicodin may help you sleep longer.

Melissa, please go to the hospital. If Vicodin is only holding the pain off for 2-3 hours, this could be serious. Not necessarily the ER, but at least get checked in today.
