My ears slosh, pop, and gurgle during the night and this morning I woke up
and I cannot hear out of my right ear. It won't clear or pop.

Hello

Do right to the ER or urgent care.

this might simply be wax sealing the ear drum.

If it is infection however, you are in danger of permanent hearing loss.

Go get it looked at right now.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
