In brief: E. tube dysfunction

Sounds like you have eustachian tube dysfunction, which is a condition in which your eustachian tube connecting your ear from the ear drum to the back of your nose is clogged up due to congestion caused by allergies or colds.
Take a deep breath, hold your mouth closed, pinch your nose closed, and force air up the eustachian tubes by blowing. You should feel a pop. Can try a decongestant or a gum.

In brief: Viral infection

The major symptoms that you describe are consistent with blockage of the eustachian tube.
This is a cartilaginous and bony passage between the back of the nose and the middle ear space. A one day history is most likely viral infection, although allergic disease of the nose is also possible. Treatment should be supportive such as an otc decongestant and nasal spray for 2 days.

In brief: Viral infection

Although the term eustachian tube dysfunction is often used, it is really eustachian tube obstruction which leads to absorption of gases in the middle ear space, causing negative pressure and a resultant middle ear fluid.
Since this a one day hx, it is almost always a viral infection and should not be treated with an antibiotic. Decongestant by mouth and otc nasal spray for 2 days may help.

In brief: Infection

If only one side is involved, it may be a localized infection such as sinusitis.
Viral infections should involve both sides. Nasal polyps might also cause one sided symptoms.
