My ears won't pop, I feel constant pressure!! Help!!?

I woke up yesterday morning feeling like I was driving up a hill. You know that feeling when you need to "pop" your ear, but my ear wont pop. When I came to work, I asked a co-worker and she said that her husband experienced the same thing. They went to the ER because he thought he was deaf in an ear,... show more I woke up yesterday morning feeling like I was driving up a hill. You know that feeling when you need to "pop" your ear, but my ear wont pop. When I came to work, I asked a co-worker and she said that her husband experienced the same thing. They went to the ER because he thought he was deaf in an ear, all the did was use one of those $10 ear wax removers that you buy at a drug store. Therefore, I went to a drug store last night and bought one. Afterwards, it felt like it helped a little. When I woke up this mornings, its worse. And now, I have a headache with it. It feels like my head is just full of pressure and i have partial hearing in my left ear. I have no other cold like symptoms however when I was laying on the couch last night my eyes were watering and I got a stuffy nose. But when I stood up, they both went away. Do I need to go to a doctor? What is wrong with me? Anyone experience the same??
