Ears "close" when hearing loud noises...

It just feels like something closes (bones in the ear, liquid, don't know), like the ear is protecting itself from the noise. When it does this, my hearing is less and instead I hear white noise, kind of. My doctor said there are bones in the ear that can move but he didn't say I had anything.
I've also always had a sort of full feeling in my ears, like somethings in there but my hearing is fine.
For the closing thing, I always picture an open hand closing into a fist. it's like an automatic response, like when something is about to hit your eyes, you close them.
