    Extreme ear fullness/pressure all day every day, accompanied by pressure in the head and behind the nose, also headaches

    The symptoms have lasted for over a month now. I'd get up in the morning, will feel some fullness in the head. A couple of hours later (depends on the day really, not accurate) ear fullness will come on, when I yawn, the ears pop for like 3-4 seconds, then return to the fullness again. When I'm lying down on my back, I feel extreme pressure in the back of the head accompanied by pressure/fullness in the ears and behind the nose. It also feels like something's pressing against the throat. It's also that bad when I'm sitting upright in the bed and resting my back, neck and head against a pillow, but when standing up, it isn't as bad and I don't feel any pressure in the back of the head, just the ears. I also get ringing in the ears quite often as well. One day I had some dizziness as well, but other than that day, no dizziness. I can't detect if I have any hearing loss or not, since I think I'm hearing everything as well as I've always been able to. I haven't had a cold, nose isn't blocked or runny, that I can't breathe through it or anything. Because of the intense pressure in the ears, I also develop a headache which is everywhere, not in any particular place. Sometimes it's in the back, sometimes on the sides or in the front. I've had like maybe 10 days of headache free days, I take pain medicine almost every day and sometimes it helps against the headaches, sometimes not. I went to see an ENT, but she said everything's fine, don't have any ear infections or anything. I am scheduled to get an audiometry test in 10 days, but thought maybe someone hear can help me out here. What could it be as it is driving me crazy already, can't figure out what's wrong and the doctors don't know what's happening either.
