    Blew my nose and popped my ear really badly

    I've been suffering from this cough that's been caused by post nasal drip for about two weeks now. The urgent care doctor said it was likely caused by a deviated septum or allergies, though he's leaning more towards a deviated septum due to the fact I can only breathe out of one nostril at a time.

    Last night I went to blow my nose and all of a sudden, there was a really sharp pain in my left ear, it popped and then got all muffled (like I had a cotton ball in there). It kind of cleared up within an hour or so and the pain was dull, so I didn't go back to urgent care.

    It's been sensitive, and my hearing wasn't muffled when I first woke up. However, a few minutes ago I yawned and my ear did that pop noise and there was a really sharp pain and my hearing is a smidge muffled. The inside of my ear feels kind of cold, and its a dull pain.

    Should I go to urgent care to get this checked out?
