Ear infection, hearing loss?! Help!

I have never had a problem like this before.
About 6 days ago, I noticed there was slight hearing loss in my right ear.
I thought it might just be ear wax, so I cleaned my ears. Even though I do so every day.
It didn't help at all, so I "popped" my ears.
That fixed the problem until a few days later.
I cleaned my ears again, that didn't help.
I popped them, that didn't help.
The last thing I could think of is some water in my ear from a recent shower.
That was also not the case.
Now it feels as if I have water stuck in my ear, or like something is covering my ear.
I got ear drops last night, I haven't noticed any real change so far.
Is this an ear infection?
Am I going deaf?!
I'm so worried about this.
How long will this last?!

It could be a middle ear infection. While at my doctor the other afternoon, he said that these infections can sometimes cause some temporary hearing problems. I would definitely see a doctor, as they can take a look in your ears and tell you for sure what is going on.
