Hello,
This wooshing sound if stays for more than 5 minutes and is not preceded by exposure to loud noise is known as tinnitus.
Steroid injection were given for that.
You have now clogged feeling--
you can take decongestant tablets and nasal decongestant drops ,and Mucolytic tablets ---these will open up the eustachian tube (a tube connecting back of nose with middle part of ears)so will help in pressure equalisation.
if you want a diagnostic test for that -- get done--
Pure tone audiometry and impedance audiometry.
