Is it bad if one ear pops very easily?

My left ear, which has a constant ache just about all day (ent says ear looks fine through several tests), pops about 5 times rapidly if i put my thumb over the opening to create a pressure seal, then slowly release my thumb (pops while releasing). My right ear, which is fine, does not pop when i do the thumb thing.

Same results when i do the method where you pinch your nose and slowly breathe out , my screwed up left ear pops while right ear doesnt pop under pressure..

I am not a doctor but is this a clear sign that something is wrong with my left ear?
