Welcome in H.C.M.
I read your mail and after co-relating all facts of your symptoms it appears as your ear was clogged by eustachian tube dysfunction
and secretory otitis
media and possibility of wax is quite less. You told about dry crust in the ear canal
followed by loss of pain is an very important in your medical history as it favours secretory otitis media not for wax.
I will suggest you to please consult your ENT doctor for further treatment as to avoid complication and for good recoery.
