Sounds like an infection. If it does not get better in a few hours call the doctor and get antibiotics. In the mean time, try an over the counter decongestant.

Do NOT try to pop your ears! This can lead to ruptures of the tympanic membrane and make your condition worse. Do what the other person said--get an over-the-counter decongestant. It will resolve itself when your cold is gone. (And antibiotics do NOT help a viral infection. Until you know for certain you have a virus or bacterial infection, don't take any medicines not prescribed by your doctor.)
