I understand your concern.
As per your description,there may be possibility of Eustachian tube dysfunction.
If you have pain,discharge,clogged ear,ringing in ear then infection should be ruled out.
Fluid could be behind the drums.
Wax,Viral infection,Allergy can be other possible causes
You should try some self care remedies like
Take OTC Allegra/Zyrtec and nasal decongestant like Sudafed.
Also steam inhalation can be helpful.
Take OTC Advil.
And do Valsalva maneuver.
Elevate your head while sleeping with an extra pillow.
