thanks for asking.
Such kind of pain and blocking sensation mostly due to some Ext auditory canal pathology like otitis externa or herpetic shingles better to consult to ENT surgeon and show them, i think its a minor problem just take some analgesics for pain and if its a shingles then just observe for facial asymmertry and take urgent treatment. Thanking you
