Stop blowing so hard: Clear your nose with gentle blowing after rinsing multiple times with OTC saline without preservative. Avoid decongestants; do not place foreign objects in ear. Apply moist heat to face and ear with hot wet cloth. See doctor if no better two days or if you get severe ear pain. May take days to unstop ear.

Head congestion: it sounds like you have a sever head cold, Probably viral . best thing to do is get some over the counter cold medication to help with your symptoms . if not improved in 24-48 hours , go to Urgent care . The ear pain is probably coming from blocked Eustachian tubes in your ears .Decongestants will help that . Take care .
