Stopped up Ear

For months, I wake up & my left ear is clogged. I went to an ENT two weeks ago who cleaned out my ears & when I complained that my left ear was still stopped up, he said give it a few days. Two weeks later, it still feels clogged, it itches inside and when I touch my earlobe or anywhere around my ear, it feels like a fluttering butterfly.

Am I losing my hearing? If I talk on the phone, it sounds perfectly normal but otherwise, the sound is muffled. I've also lost my voice range.

If you hear a " fluttering" sound you may want to look into a condition known as Middle Ear Myoclonus...might be what you have.
