It sounds that you may be dealing with a problem of Eustachian tube dysfunction..
This is a connection between the middle ear space behind the ear drum to the back of the throat...
It allows for the pressure of the air behind and in front of the eardrum to be equal...
If it swells shut then the pressure may not be equal and this can lead to the eardrum being retracted back under tension..
This causes a uncomfortable feeling and may affect your hearing..
Over time fluid may collect behind the eardrum.. = serous otitis ..
The problem of Eustachian tube dysfunction may be brought on by allergies or a cold frequently ...
You may benefit to try an antihistamine with decongestant such as Allegra D ( behind the counter at pharmacy)
If not improving you may have your ears checked by your primary care doctor or ENT MD ...
