About a month ago I woke up to my left ear being really clogged and I couldn't fix it. A few days later it popped and was ok. But now whenever I sleep on my left side, it clogs up again. The only way I can unclog it is to put my hand over my ear and push until it pops. My left side is the side I always sleep on and am uncomfortable in any other position. Why does my ear keep clogging up? Nothing is dripping out of it, it doesn't hurt (unless its clogged. then the pressure kind of hurts), it doesn't itch, there is no wax buildup and it only clogs when I lay on it. Please help. I am literally losing sleep over this.
