What are the symptoms of middle ear infections?
Middle ear infections usually develop suddenly after a cold or sore throat. Common symptoms include earache, fever, temporary hearing loss and generally feeling ill. In young children, who are unable to voice what they are feeling, symptoms can also include loss of balance, reduced hunger, disrupted sleep, behavioral problems and rubbing or pulling on the ears.
