Why is my ear blocked and ringing after violent coughing?

I ve had a violent cough for two days and yesterday I was lying on the sofa and when I sat up my ear was blocked and ringing. I ve woken up in the middle of the night in agony! I ve tried most of the common methods of popping your ears but none of them will work:( was wondering what I could do or if I should see my GP?
