What does it mean if your hearing keeps fluctuating?

Earlier today, I was having trouble hearing youtube on my stylo 4 phone, it was at maximum volume. Later on, my mp3 player volume was too loud, and it was on my normal volume. I switched over to my stylo 6, and the volume was just right.  Now, its louder, and my mp3 player is back to normal. I have a swollen right ear right now, but what's causing hearing to fluctuate? Its been going in and out for days now, without apparent cause. 


I have an appointment with my physician in a few weeks, as well as maybe getting my hearing tested at Sam's club, but I was just looking for opinions on why this is happening.

    Hearing loss may be caused by a mechanical issue in the ear canal or middle ear that blocks the conduction of sound sensorineural hearing loss).

    or by damage to the inner ear, auditory nerve, or auditory nerve pathways in the brain.(sensorineural hearing loss).It would be best to see an ENT health care provider
