Otolaryngologist/ENT Doctor 's  Response
There are several causes for sensation of blockage/fullness in the ears associated with decreased hearing. Accumulated wax being one of the most common causes. The actual cause can be assertained only after a proper ear examination. I suggest you to consult an ENT specialist and follow his/her advice.

Hope this helps.
