Blocked Ear when pressure is applied on cheek bone

I have this problem when I lay on my left side and pressure is under my cheek, my left ear blocks and stays that way for a long time, If I massage the ear and cheekbone it seems to unblock a little but not completley...This can't possibly be water? Surely it wouldn't come and go like that?

It's difficult enough diagnosing audio concerns on this forum, let alone medical diagnosis. My suggestion: Get to a medical doctor and have him/her take a look at your ear. If you take advice from anyone on this forum (as I have many times) you'll likely end up buying more gear, while your ear problem remains ! lol

Sounds similar to something I battle maybe once a year.
It could be mucus in your eustation tube.
Antibiotics, sudafed and nasal steroids all at once for about a week seems to be the only way to clear it for me.
YMMV.

Same problem in past

I've experiened a similar, or same problem in years past.
>>>SOUDED LIKE I WAS IN AN 130+DB TECHNO CLUB THE PREVIOUS NIGHT!!!<<<
Mine was simply the aural canal being piched closed by the weight of my bulbus head. The ''ear wax'' would keep the canal closed until I would pull straight down while touching just below the outer ear.
The going phrase is ''do not put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear''.
It seems keeping it dry, and perspiration free always helped. However I have not experienced the problem, in about two years. It happened several years before, and only ever lasted, no more than a couple weeks at a time.

See an audiologist or ENT doctor. Whatever you do, don't do one of those ear candle things. They don't do anything positive for you and potentially could create problems (cf ear and elbow).
