Sorry about the awkward title, i couldn't really think of anything better to call it.
Now to the topic at hand, i fell asleep in the bath a few days ago, when i woke up i had nearly slipped under the surface of the water and my right ear was hurting a little (i could hear perfectly fine, it just hurt). Over the last 4 or 5 days the pain has gradually gotten worse and has also been accompanied by a slight ringing noise, i've also noticed all the sound entering that ear is fainter than the other. I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea of what it could be and if it will just go away.
any help would be much appreciated.
