A couple of days ago my right ear started to get a sensation of feeling full, then a bit later that same day my hearing went all muffled in that the same ear. Since then the feeling of fullness has got worse, and my lack of being able to hear has got worse. Every now and again I hear and feel crackling / popping sensations in that ear, and if I press on the skin where my ear canal is I get a horrid squelching sound. It doesn't hurt at all under normal circumstances, but after a while of eating I can get a mild sharp pain with each jaw movement. I feel fine otherwise, not experiencing any other unusual symptoms, and my left ear is totally fine.
Does anyone have any ideas what this is and what could be causing it, and if you know of any methods that might help clear it. I'm reluctant to use over the counter ear cleaning remedies as they aren't supposed to be used if the ear drum is damaged and I'd rather not take the risk. I also had that ear syringed not that long ago so it surely can't be wax build up in such a short space of time, however I could be wrong.
Any thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated.
