In brief: Allergies & sinus

This could be allergies.
It could also be a chronic sinus infection as well. The ears popping tell me that your eustachian tube is not working like it should... I would lean torward a nasal or sinus issue. Reflux is possible as well. As a trial you could try some over the counter antihistamine (zyrtec) before you go to bed and/or try some over the counter Zantac for possible reflux.

Better choice would be to go to an allergist first.

In brief: Hard to tell

You may have allergies (dust, chemicals you use) or potentially gerd (reflux) that may cause similar problems.
It's worth checking out in your physician's office. I'd recommend keep a diary of potential allergens and also take anti-gerd measures (elevated the head of bed, go to bed at least after 2-3 hours since your last meal, avoid foods that are known to cause gerd - spicy, greasy, etoh/caffein.

In brief: Many possibilities

Anything from allergy to infection to anatomical obstruction and back again.
The symptoms you describe are very common and you really need to see your doctor to have him/her take a good history and examine you. Until you get to your doctor you can try an over the counter antihistamine decongestant combination and see if it gives you some relief.
