In brief: Pressure

Partial blockage of the eustacian tube which runs from the side of the back of the throat into the middle ear. When this happens it creates a sensation of fullness.
You can try relieving this by thrusting your lower jay forward and your head back, or by holding your nostrils and blowing against a closed mouth (but be very careful with this), or use a nasal spray or decongestant or a sinus rinse.
