Provided: you earls are cleared of wax, the blockage you feels may be the eustacian tubes..tiny tubes which communicate bewteen the middle ear and nose thus EQUALIZING pressure between the middle ear and outside...TRY SWALLOWING and /or CHEWING GUM and see if this helps...if it does some nasal spray may be helpful! Just a thought, hope it's helpful Dr Z
