Re: Cracking sound in ear, Constant nasal drip: need help identifying problem.
Hey Rich, I'm 24 now and I've been diagnosed with Tinnitus since July of this year, although every month it seems to be getting better and better compared to the first month of not being able to sleep at all and at one point, not being able to even hear conversations with normal people in a quiet room. But my question has more to do with the fact that you've done some "research" on people who have been able to flex the back of their throat and open their Eustachian tubes at will. That's what my problem is leaning more towards as of late, not so much the Tinnitus. It seems like everytime I either take a drink or swallow something, I now have a loud cracking sound but I know my tubes are opening because it makes the same sound as when I yawn. The annoying part is when I'm either talking or happen to bend over to do something and my left ear tends to "pop" more often than my right one does, but I was just wondering if you know of anything else on this subject, such as possible muscles involved, ENT advice on this, or possible remedies for popping of your ears that are much louder than usual, when doing normal swallowing activities.
Thanks bud, feel free to message me anytime.
