In brief: Otitis Media?
Pressure feeling in the inside of ear could represent just fluid in the middle ear or viral infection secondary to upper respiratory tract infection.
Usually self limited disease unless start having marked pain, fever, hearing problem then seek medical attention. Sometimes bacterial infection can complicate the problem on top of viral infection. Usually more common at younger age, boys

Examination is the key.
We can see ear infection very easily. It could also be a cold, allergies, or a simple congestion. See doctor.
