Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be a few causes for the feeling.
Common cause is collection of fluid in ear.
This can occur in an infection, otitis media.
Eustachian tube block can cause it.
I would suggest to take an examination by an ENT specialist.
Nasal decongestants, steroid can help.
But those need to be prescribed by taking consideration of your underlying health condition.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.
