Hello Irish & welcome to the forum. To be perfectly honest, no, I know of anyone here in our forum that experienced what you are after an untreated ear infection. I have a long history of ear infections & never experienced anything like this either. Folks here in this forum suffer from chronic pain for a variety of reasons.
If you are getting on the internet & looking up your symptoms up I would stop that immediately. Dr. Google is rarely right & this will only cause your anxiety to soar through the roof. Don't get yourself caught up in the what ifs & that serves no real purpose. I see that you are active in the A&P forum & those folks have offered up some excellent info to you.
Keep in mind drs spend an enormous amount of time going to school to become educated in the medical field. As far as auto-immune disorders go it takes a lot of elimination processes sometimes to get a dx because some mimic each other with symptoms. Work with your dr & take it a day at a time, sometimes its moment by moment. Hang in there.
