How to cure ear pain?

Help please:

When ever I try to blow to adjust to the pressure outside I get a loud screeching noise come out my right ear but not my left, it's not exactly painful but it's hard to tell if it popped, please help and I don't know when or how it started so I hope that's enough to go on

Thanks, Awesmiss

You may be having , what is called as Eustachian tube dysfunction.
This a tube connecting your nose and ear and hence the noise after blowing your nose. I would like to know if you are having any nose block?
nasal allergies? sinus infection? snoring at night?
and whether you smoke or not?
I would be in a better position to help you if you let me know the answers to these questions.
