Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.
I have gone through your history of illness and as you said that you were having stuffy nose, sore throat
and popping in ears on swallowing. Your all these symptoms indicates that you are having acute upper respiratory tract
infection involving nose, probably sinuses
and throat. From throat infection
has reached to ears by Eustachian tube (tubular connection between ear and throat ). This eustachian tube normaly opens with act of swallowing thus you feel popping in your both ears.
For treatment of your this problem you should take antibiotics, anti inflammatory, decongestant and steam inhalation. I hope this will help you. Bul if any how you don't feel any relief with this treatment than physical examination will be necessary and for that you will need an ENT doctor.
Wishing you an speedy recovery.
