welcome to healthcare magic
Probably you are suffering from 'post traumatic disorder'. In this disorder patients have severe anxiety after exposure to a stressful event, and anxiety may manifest in the form of somatic symptoms like headache and ear close. It is treated by use of antidepressants (clonazepam is not an antidepressant) like sertraline, escitalopram, fluoxetine; along with psychotherapy. Treatment should be continued for atleast 6 months. So you should consult with a psychiatrist for a proper treatment as longer duration use of sedatives like clonazepam will make you dependent on it.
best of luck
