Need Help!

Well, where do I start...

I have this crackling noise in both my ears yet not so much in my right ear and I know what started it.

I went swimming one time and I got water clogged up in both my ears and well eventually it fell out but my ears started to hurt a lot but I ignored it (silly me) and eventually the pain went. but a few days after the pain had left my ears started to make this crackling noise when I flexed my ear drum or swallowed, I also ignored this and well 4 years later I visited the doctor and she found ear infections in both my ears, Yes I ignored this for 4 years! she prescribed me ear drops and a antibiotic pills and well I'm currently taking them and it's been five days and I see some sort of improvements but regardless I can still make the noise

It doesn't happen randomly but when I flex my ears or when I swallow.

Note: When I enter a Tunnel or stay in a Car my ears feel enormous pressure and then I make the noise to make my ears feel better and well it does.

What could this noise be exactly?

Re: Need Help!

It could be wax or even tinitus.
If I was you I would see an ENT Dr.
I get the same sensation of fullness in my ears at times like you but it does clear itself.
Good Luck,
