Suggest treatment for blocked ears

Hello, My ear has been blocked for about 2 weeks now. I can hear about 30% as well on that ear as the other one, and I have been getting occasional spikes in pain. I am supposed to fly tomorrow but do not know if it is safe as the pressure in my ear is already very not correct right now (I was trying to get seen about this a week ago but I could not get an appointment until May 14th). -Ryan
