Hearing management

My right ear going slowly deaf

My problem started early this year that when ever i use ear bud my right ear will give me a feeling like its blocked. it will be for while then get unblocked after maybe an hour or so.

sometime in August my ear(same ear) got blocked for 24hrs, i tried all sorts of means to ublock it but nothing helped utill it goes back to normal on it''s own.

Am becoming worried because recently i feel a slight pain deep insde it. last week i went to the pharmacy to get medication for the pain. i also asked for the specialist ''s contacts but the pharmacist said i must go to a GP.

I always test it by closing the left ear to hear if i can hear the same way, but the left one is more stronger than the right one.

i am so worried, could i possibly be going deaf or what. please advice, i am in the South of JHB(Mondeor)
