Have you seen your GP?
Your symptoms sound like a possible ear infection.
Fluid in the middle ear can cause the muffled sound, and as the pressure builds -- it can cause the ringing in the ear, as well as the pain.
Having your doctor look in your ear can help to make the diagnosis here.
And if an infection is suspected, they would prescribe antibiotics.

Well, you can take antiinflammatory medications to help with the pain.
But you should really get in to see your GP here.
