persistent earache after a cold

i came down with a cold several weeks ago after quitting smoking (it seems becoming ill happens to nearly everyone who has quit), but afterwards an earache, particularly in my left ear/back of the upper left side of my throat lingered for approximately a week and a half to two weeks. it only hurts when i swallow. I unfortunately have high anxiety and a current case of hypochondriasis so I was hypothesizing that swallowing hard constantly for several days might have contributed to this as the back of my tongue on the left side also hurt until today... Vitamin c Halls drops seem to help a little bit... any suggestions before I go spending 75 bucks at the doc's office?
