The symptoms started 4 days ago. There is no pain but hearing in that ear is muffled. Yesterday I experienced dizziness that affected my balance. I have an appt to see my doctor next Thursday. I used used Debrox earwax removal thinking it may be a wax buildup but that method did not work, in fact it made it worse.

Thank you for the input.

There can be several issues related to the feeling & muffled hearing. Transient hearing loss can occur in ear infection, blocked Eustachian tubes, impaction by wax. Otosclerosis, circulatory problems & a few other problems can be there. You need to get it checked by doctor.The treatment will depend on the cause. If there is a block in the eustachean tubes, anticold tablets like tylenol cold can help.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
