I get a cracking and popping sound in my ears everytime I yawn or swallow. And the hearing in my right ear seems somewhat less.

Does anyone know what these symptoms show?

  • I might hv a solution 4 u. I'm 25yrs old & hv had tubes put in both ears, I've had tubes in my ears forever. The tube in left ear came out in maybe '98 & I didn't hv anothr one put in. The past 2-3yrs my left ear had been popping & felt stuffed up constently! U kno how your ears feel when u fly? It was like that all the time - it got worse when I yawned, sneezd, blew my nose. My ENT Dr could see the pressure in my ear ws messd up but had no idea wht was causn this, allergy test showd I don't hv any allergies. I thought maybe it ws cz I didn't hv tube in tht ear anymore cz right ear still had a tube & I didn't hv probs wth the right ear. Jan of this year I had surgery - had tube put bk into left ear, replaced tube in right ear, & had a deviated septum fixd (all in the same surgery). I hvnt had probs with my left ear at all since my surgery!! I'm 100% sure tht putn tube in my ear again is wht cured this! I dnt kno if u've ever had tubes in your ears before. U shld definately see an ear,nose & throat dr. Dnt kno wht thy'll suggest since my dr had no idea wht ws causing the prob - It ws MY idea to put a tube bk into my ear, not my dr's. Before the surgery I had even tried takn over the counter allergy pills & I thought thy helpd a little, but maybe I was just desperate for a solution. U cld try tht & see if it gives u a temporary solution. It's such a relief to hv my ear normal again!! I hope this helps U, I kno wht U're going thru!
