Question crackling in ears

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if they experience ear crackling sounds, and what causes this.. If I yawn, speak, or hear any loud noises it causes my ears to make a crackling sound like a bad speaker connection.. Any thoughts or experience with this as well will be greatly appreciated.

Re: crackling in ears

boxerlover227,

When I have ear trouble, (popping, strange noises, fullness) it is normally the result of fluid in my ears. This fluid is normally the side effect of a sinus or ear infection. However allergy suffers can have chronic ear fluid.

Sincerely,
MG

Re: crackling in ears

Hi Mkgbrook
Thanks for the reply.. can this fluid as well cause vertigo? I also have subjective vertigo, as well as the ear symptoms.. The vertigo is more of a motion sensation verses spinning.. Can this as well be a connection?
Thanks again.. Boxerlover

Re: crackling in ears

This past spring I experienced crackling in my ears, popping and vertigio (though I didn't know what verdigo was at the time) I had fluid in my ears caused by sinus infection. My Dr. prescribed Nasonex. It really helped my ears, by allowing the trapped fluid to drain. I must say though, the draining fluid aggrevated my tonsilitis, and five days ago, I had a tonsillectomy, for what it's worth.

Re: crackling in ears

boxerlover227,

"Thanks for the reply"
Your welcome.

".. can this fluid as well cause vertigo?"
YES! Your ears a key to your internal gyroscope... balance system. When packed or partially full of fluid, they can cause nausea and unsteadiness due to quick motions... sitting to standing, laying to sitting, or driving about in your car (too fast normally)

"Nasonex, Flonase, or Nasocort(taste really bad.. prefer Nasonnex and Flonase myself)"
Is a nasal steriod and will help minimize allergen and irritant based mucus production in your head, thus it can be helpful if your source is allergen/irritant based. It also helps to take a decongestant to speed the drying out of mucus. However if the fluid is infected you will need antibiotics to get it out and keep it out. It wouldn't hurt to get a GP to look in your ears and see if you have fluid and whether it is infected or not.

Best wishes and good luck.
