In brief: Otosclerosis

Otosclerosis can also affect the inner ear so may not be misdiagnosis.
Evaluation with updated hearing test, ct temporal bones might be helpful.

In brief: Recurrent

Ear infections as child can caues otoclerosis.
But your new symptoms seem unrelated to it. Get to a doctor or ENT specialist. It could be something as simple as impacted cerumen or complicated such as permanent nerve damage.
