Can impacted wisdom teeth cause ear problem?

I have an impacted wisdom tooth and on that side of my head my ear always feels clogged and my nose often feels clogged as well I was wondering if it could be a correlation of the impacted wisdom tooth? I’ve had the issue for like 2 years now and I’m 21 years old.

    Yes, the tooth can compress the nerves and cause referred pain in the ear, I imagine it could cause this clogged feeling you describe as well.
