Sounds like your Eustation Tube may be plugged. Or you have a bad sinus infection. Keep using the antibiotics till finished. If you do not have a humidifier borrow one or buy one. Gargle with salt water that will help too.
I found this web site and it had many solutions for strep infection. I think you have had this for sometime and it has plugged the tubes that go from your ears to the back of your throat. Make sure you read about Eucalyptus Oil.
Wish you get well soon

Sometimes it is hard to tell what you are treating-If you feel like you want to rub your eyes,noses and maybe even ears (one or any combo) you are probably having problems with your sinuses and can use over the counter sinus meds (Claritin D the best) and humidifier and drink lots of of water, juices and take vitamin C 1000mg during cold and flu season.If you feel achy all over have a sore throat and are running a fever-you probably do have strep throat which won't be cured with amoxicillin and Motrin. It will need to be diagnosed by a throat swab and a Z pack(erythromycin) is usually prescribedand Motrin for achy(or can use Ibuprofren). You should probably return to Dr if you have strep throat symptoms because this could be harmful to your kidneys if let go too long. Happy Healing!!
