Problem with ear/face going numb
So I was lounging around and happened to stick my finger in my left ear (don't ask) and immediately my left ear and a lot of the left side of my face went numb (I'm not talking minor numbness, I'm talking completely numb), as I pulled it out it still felt blocked like something was in it and numb, and I had to twist my ear a little/play with it to get it back to normal. I thought this was really weird.. so I did it again. Same thing happened. Entire ear and side of face went numb. I've had one other thing going on with my ears for a little while now and don't know if it's related, but sometimes they'll "pop" over and over for a while, just every few seconds, and feels like I have water in it. This was mostly in the right ear, but I've noticed it in the left.
Edit: Could this be a neurological thing? I have a lot of pain in my neck/upper back (possibly a herniated disc, waiting on MRI results for cervical spine currently). Yesterday when I cracked my neck I started having severe pain on the right side of my neck but don't know if that's related in any way.
