Does that sound like an ear infection to you?
Adults can get ear infections, yes. I had an ear infection, after a cold, and ended up with a perforated eardrum and labyrinthitis; first and only ear infection I've ever had.
With cheek pain, it could also be sinus involvment, or teeth etc, probably wise to get it checked out.
