It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. Four weeks is a long time to leave it unattended. It would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!

Persistent symptoms that don't self resolve mean that you should be seeing a doctor for diagnosis and appropriate treatment. This is an educational site. while telemedicine on paid sites is available, better to see a GP or ENT for appropriate physical exam.

Clogged ear could be from water in ear, a large amount of wax and less pressure when you eat or drink since you are moving your jaw. Post nasal drip from sinus possible infection. All symptoms need immediate exam from an ENT specialist since it has been a month.
