Blocked ear - eustashian tube

I have has a plugged up ear for the last 7 weeks and it has caused all sorts of problems. I have had 2 antibiotics a trip to an ent who says maybe it doesn't need to pop and sent me for a ct scan - still waiting
I paid for an mri of head and neck as I was starting to get burning tingles on head and panicked - all I think which is coming from nerves in ear
I am desperately trying to unblock the tube to clear all the other symptoms
As far as I know I don't have allergies or sinus infection must have been a viral infection
I purchased a otuvert ballon and haven't used it yet can anyone tell if they have used this and does it work
Or could u suggest any other things to do - I am flying in a week and not looking forward to the descent ahhhhhh
Any help very grateful

Have you tried hydrogen peroxide ? I lay on my side and pour a capful in my ear and just let it bubble away.

Really is that safe? Once I do this does the fluid drain away? I think my problem is the inner ear as i dont have wax on my ear canal
