Left Ear Fullness/Pressure

About a week ago I stood right in front of a loud speaker (music) for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Immediately after the music was turned off, I have this strange feeling in my left ear only. Not my right ear. The feeling is like a strange fullness and or pressure of some kind. No discharge is coming out of the ear. My left ear down to the left side of my jaw has this strange feeling to it as well, even behind my left ear had this strange feeling. Perhaps a very light, ringing but that's questionable since I don't notice it all the time. My hearing though seems fine. In both ears.

Any possibilities of what this could be?

Thanks

Don't really know, but suspect you have some physical damage that has caused swelling.  Good news that your hearing is fine.

Hope you learned something, protect your hearing from all loud noise, no matter how "cool" it is.

If the symptom doesn't improve (don't have number but I'll likely wait a couple weeks given no pain, ringing, or loss of hearing) see you primary care doctor, for a start.  I'd not go first a specialist.
