Hearing test is fine. Told to take Flonase. How long to take?

Hello. I suffered from a cold in early March. This cold lasted for about 10 days, during which I had clogged ears. This went away.

Then in early April, two porcelain dishes slammed together close to my ear, and afterward I felt some discomfort and a mild pressure in my left ear. My ear has felt this way since.

I saw my ENT several times. Prescribed me Flonase. I had a hearing test and ENT read results and said my hearing is fine. Told me to keep taking Flonase.

I lost my health insurance, so I can't see my ENT again for a while. It has been almost 2 months and no relief from pressure sensation in ear.

Any advice?

Note: I also have a mild, roaring tinnitus (it sounds like when you put your fingers in your ears). Can only hear it when it is very quiet. Do not know if this is related, have it for over a year.

As described by you that there is feeling clogging in the ears while your hearing is normal as told by your ENT specialist, than it might be impairnes of your hearing due to some wax or water logged during your bath, so here I advice you to do VOLSELUM exercise i.e. to put air pressure in ears by closing your Mouth & Nostrils, 2-3 times daily, hope you will be relieved by such exercise and keep totally dry your ears for 3-4 weeks, while you take bath, put cotton in the ears during bath.Hope it will help you to solve your problem. Take care
