Feeling pressure in the ears, not able to recognize the voice levels, dizziness. What is happening?

My ears don't hurt inside but it feels like I'm in a tunnel- where there is pressure. I can't tell how loud I am speaking& very loud noises are amplified. I am getting over being sick with congestion& body aches & fever off&on but my ears won't clear out- they don't feel like there is fluid in them though so its strange why this is happening. It is starting to make me feel dizzy & sick to my stomach today.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
There can be fluid or negative pressure behind the ears.
Fluid in ears (middle part of ear) could be becuase of poor Eustachain tube function (Tube connecting middle part of ear and back of nose). Which normally open and closes and maintain middle ear pressure same as outside pressure.
It does not function properly when there is infection in nose, In flight when due take off and landing the pressure difference causes the tube to close, if there is any swelling or mass behind the nose like enlarged adenoid or any growth , and also long term reflux from stomach can cause this.
You can see an ENT specialist and get done--
Ear examination to see the your ear drums are intact .
Get done Impedance audiometry - a test to know if there is any fluid behind your ears.
Get done nasal Endoscopy to see the part behind the nose.
You can take decongestant tablets and decongestant nasal drops with mucolytic.
