Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
This may be due to pressure in your inner ear rather then your ear canal.
Since your GP doesn't seem to be able to figure it out I suggest you ask for a referral to an ENT specialist.
Does this make sense to you?

Hi Dr. Rick,
I just wanted to add some symptoms and hope that maybe you can help me with something until I manage to get to an ENT doctor, or maybe so I can have something definitive to tell them.
When I try to clear my ear canal I can hear a series of popping sounds and my hearing improves for a second before clogging back up. Does that fit with pressure on my inner ear? Also, would taking antibiotics or a medicine which eliminates phlegm help at all?
