Bronchitis, clogged ears, used heating pad. Why is this happening?

I have had a bad case of bronchitis for about 4 days now. The doc checked my ears 3 days ago and said they were fine. I have not been that congested, less than you would be with a cold . But today my ear slowly started feeling clogged. Now it is too the point it feels like I have my finger stuck in it because I can not hear anything out of that ear. I have tried leaning over upside down to see if anything would drain, I laid down on my side with my ear on a heating pad for about an hr and then tried it on a very hot steamy towel, and Ive tried to pop my ears. Nothing has helped. Why is this happening

ENT Specialist 's  Response
if you have the feeling of clogged ear then you must get an ent consultation and will need an antibiotic , oral and nasal decongestant ,antiinflammatory.
You can chew chewing gums so that the ear drains through the tube which is connected between the middle part of ear and back of nose.
You should get done a test pure tone audiometry and impedance audiometry to see whether you have the fluid collection behind the ears or there is any nerve deafness.
