Dear Oddie

Again like i always say, there is a lot of possible explanations and answers to you problem. Blocked ears could be a symptom of wax in the canal, infection in the middle ear and several other diseases. Start with a visit to your GP so that he/she can have a look for anything obviously wrong in the ear. If it isn't anything obvious then i would recommend you go and see an ENT specialist. It is worth investigating this further.

Please right again if you have any further questions or concerns.
