Hallo Richard

Unfortunately, there are a number of possibilities for a blocked ear and it is important to look at it in more depth. If it doesn't clear up within a week, it will be best to seek medical attention. It could be related to the flu and you may still have a pressure build-up in the middle-ear.

Make sure that you seek medical attention if the problem doesn't clear up soon.

Kind regards
