You : You may be dealing with allergies and/or sinus pressure and drainage hence the warm sensation. This type of pressure can affect your ears causing pain and the "popping" sensation. Try taking a daily anti-histamine like Claritin (loratadine) or alavert and also take a decongestant (i.e. Sudafed) and monitor for improvement. I hope this helps.
