Could be fluid: It could be fluid in your ear combined with a sinusitis. When the nose is congested it can affect the tube that runs from the back of your nose to your ear leading to the formation of fluid. Your primary care doctor should be able to make this diagnosis and often a course of antibiotics can be helpful. An ENT doctor can also take a look and make the diagnosis for you.
