In brief: Sounds like

You may have some sinus inflammation and complicating eustachian tube dysfunction.
You may want to consider a trial of Neti Pot use (as in saline irrigation for the sinuses) and safe steam exposure to see if things will open up. Otherwise a more formal HealthTap Prime consultation will allow for better guidance. As always if your symptoms worsen, see your doc in person.
