2 possibilities: Sudden plugging of the ears after swimming very often means impacted wax or the possibility of external otitis, a mild infection of the skin of the ear canal.

I went to the pool 8 hrs ago. I haven't went swimming many months ago. I have a really bad headache. Could it be the chlorine or something else?
Could be the trigger:
