Brief Answer:
Ear drum rupture...

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting the query

After going through the history, I am of the opinion that you could have got the ear drum ruptured following the trauma to the ear. That's the reason for air getting escaped through the perforation, when you try to the pop the ears.

Consult your doctor for an ear evaluation. Meanwhile, avoid the water getting into the left ear and blowing the nose.

Hope this answers your query; Revert back to me if you have any follow-up queries.
