Discomfort in ear

I am used to having slight pain & some discomfort usually associated with water trapped in my left ear. It happens occasionally & gets well within 2 days. Where as this time it has been on for over 7 days. Also when I use ear bud in my left ear, it usually pains so I have to do it very lightly compared to the right ear

Hello, there are many causes for earache , including ear blockage, otitis externa, foreign body in the ear , middle ear infection etc.... Doctor has to examine to know whether problem present within or out of the middle ear, don't insert anything now . Get an appointment with ENT specialist
