if you have a lot of mucus you may have congestion in your ear causing increased pressure, which can hurt and cause the ringing sensation. If you develop a fever or have worsening symptoms go see your doctor or urgent care.

No. You may have Eustacian tube dysfunction or ear infection. Everyone swallows clear mucus routinely, like your saliva.
