Oh heck yeah, don't go to the hospital unless it's the only place around. Like Silver said hit a walkin clinic or urgent care place or dial the neighborhood doctor.
As for the ear infection, it sounds more like your eustachian tubes are plugged which can lead to infection if it hasn't already. You need to help loosen the mucous that's in there by drinking alot of fluids (warm ones help) and taking a decongestant and trying to yawn to clear the tubes. It will take a few days for it to go away, but you'll hear a pop and then everyone will sound like they are yelling at you because you'll have your hearing back in that ear. It's a real pain to have an ear infection, I've had them on and off for 40 years. Hope you feel better soon.
