Hi I have been having several health problems..
First, my ears feel clogged up which is an uncomfortable feeling, and I feel that's whats causing my headaches?? I don't know what it is?? I'm really concern and worried.
Second I've been feeling really hesitated and tired, like when I breath, yes I am overweight, but I never felt like this before, it's getting me really worried. I don't feel pain, I just feel really unhealthy. I don't know if it's stress, not enough exercise, my eating habits..I just want to know, So I could start doing something about it. Thank you. I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks for posting your query.
The commonest cause of clogged ears is impacted wax. The other causes like suppurative otitis media is also a possibility. You can use carbamide peroxide solution to resolve the wax problem. If the symptoms persist then consulting an ENT specialist will help.
The generalised tiredness and weakness that you have could be due to-
1. Generalized viral illness.
2. Improper diet.
3. Abnormal body posture, muscle overuse.
4. Electrolyte imbalance.
5. Hormonal disbalance like hypothyroidism.
5. Anxiety neurosis.
All these possibilities need to be ruled out after a proper physical examination and related blood tests.
Till the time you get evaluated for these possibilities, there are some of the other lifestyle options which you can follow:
1) You can take a mild pain killer like paracetamol or ibuprofen for symptomatic relief. Taking a well balanced will be helpful.
2) Do not take caffeine or alcohol at night just before going to bed.
3) Indulge in yoga and meditation to calm your mind.
4) You can also indulge in progressive muscle relaxation which is useful in anxiety by alternately tensing and relaxing the muscles.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
