Blocked ears and worst monsoons ever, HELP?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello kind people, hope you're doing good. I am writing here in hope to connect with people who can help analyse what's wrong with my ear. It started 3 months back when I dived into water, My ears hurt so bad I cried and water got stuck/created a blocked feeling. I thought it had almost healed until now. I had bad cold throat some days back, took medicines for the cold BUT my ears are blocked than ever. Also, there is constant cough in my throat. Things tried so far:

1) Eating spicy food in attempt to make the ear pop

2) Applying heat behind the ear

3) Pinching my nose and inhaling and exhaling (the ear makes sounds during this) 

4) Swallowing 

5) Visited an ent. She carried out Tympanometry and the other basic ear check, results are fine.

    Hi did they give you have a hearing test with the ENT and do you feel like you are not hearing as well as you usually do? It's hard to imagine that tympanometry is normal if you hear sounds from your ear when pinching your nose and inhaling/exhaling. What has the ENT done to help you and what do they think is causing this feeling if it's not blocked eustachian tubes?

      She did not ask any other questions, shooed me away after seeing the reports, saying I should probably forget about it. My ears are completely blocked in the morning, after which it gets better but it feels like there's some kind of fluid inside, it feels numb and blocked, Earing is the same as before(I have always had ear ringing which continues). Maybe its related to my cold and cough? Trying all home remedies to get rid of all the cough.
