Breathing through my ear

Are there any doctors out there familiar with the weird sensation of running and feeling like you are breathing through your ear? I had a lovely 7 mile trail run today which was partially spoiled by my left ear acting up. It honestly felt like I was breathing through my ear, it was horrible, when I spoke my voice sounded far too loud but it was also hard to hear what was being said to me. I could really hear every breath through that ear, really loud, but only my left ear. I just googled it, and it sounds like patulous eustacian tube but I don't really know. It wore off an hour or so after the run, and I have had it before. What is it, can I stop it happening again, and is it anything to worry about or just annoying?

I think it might be sweat in your ear distorts all the sounds and makes you feel weird.
