1year old rubbing top of head+crying a lot

We think she is teething, although usually she just pulls her ears,bites etc. She keeps rubbing the top of her head, between forhead and crown as if it's painful like she's bumped it, but as far as we know she hasnt and this has been going on for 2 days. Anyone know why she's doing this? Obviously if she is still doing it on monday we will take her to see the doctor.

Ear infection?

Is it worse when she lies down?

Yes she's rubbing and scratching it in the night. She's not really touching her ears though. ?

Is she crying all the time or now and again? Is she very distressed or just occasionally. If all the time I would be tempted to take her to the hospital

Is there any change in her demeaner - lethargic, sleepy, whaling, whimpering, etc?

Only crying sometimes. Not too distressed and she is generally more whimpery and clingy

First thought would be ears too - at that age I found DD would get bad infections and be generally tearful and clingy, but wouldn't directly pull ears. Any sign of fever? I think I would get it checked out today - being in pain isn't much fun
