    While this is something you should probably talk to with your doctor (ENT).  While I am not a doctor nor a medical professional, there are medical proceedures that they can do either in their office or as a form of out patient surgery to clear that issue to some extent.  Yet in most cases the doctors feel it will clear itself over time.

      It's ringing in my left ear with pressure and some popping and a small amount of pain...when I bend down I become dizzy, pressure in my head, nose drainage and discomfort on the bridge of my nose. I had a head injury in August of last year and this just started a month ago. ENT said it was unrelated and removed wax from my ear. All of the symptoms I mentioned returned. Going to see an ENT tomorrow

      When I put anefrin spray in my nose, I can feel a sensation in my left ear

    It often does clear on its own but the ENT consultant may suggest grommets in one or both ears. Tiny tubes inserted through the eardrum,under anaesthetic. They help to dry out the glueyness.  They are often left in until they fall out on their own.
