Hallo Yusuf.  It could be earwax impaction but it can also be tube of Eustachian dysfunction.  Tube of Eustachian dysfunction may result in an inablity to equalize air to your middle ear space and may cause a block feeling and even discomfort.  An audiologist can inspect your earcanal to see if it is wax and do a tympanogram and tube of Eustachian test to test that function.  When you phone for an appointment ask if that audiologist have the equipment to do tube of Eustachian testing and removal of ear wax.  Best of luck.  Is your hearing ok?
