Ear pain with swelling since blowing the nose. What could be causing this?

I blew my nose a little bit ago (been congested past few days) and I felt this pain in my ear, my ear I can tell is a big swollen, but I m not dizzy, I m not hearing noise (like buzzing) and I didn t hear any noise when I blew my noise in the ear... so I m not sure what is wrong with it, I m not sure if this is something I just leave alone and it gets better, or something I should be seen for... thank you.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Pain in ear could be due to congestion in middle ear. as there is a tube connecting between ear and nose.
Get examined by doctor for any bulging ear drum.
You can take antihistamines to reduce congestion and NSAIDs to reduce pain.

Hope I answered your question. Consult your doctor for further management.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries or doubts and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wish you good health. Take care.
