    Constant Crackling, sensation of fullness in ears, what is it?

    For a long time now, I have a feeling like my ears are always clogged, and by sort of moving my throat in such a way, or plugging my nose and breathing out, i can constantly pop my ears. Many times its not just a pop, but long series of crackling/popping. I can do it over and over again. Are those my eustachian tubes? Anyone have this and have it diagnosed? Can it cause things such as an off balance feeling? It almost feels like im cracking my ears by flexing my throat or jaw...

    Thanks,
    Adam

    for a while now ive had a general feeling of being off balance...get sinus infections often, pressure on the side of my head. using rhinocort seems to help lessen the popping some but its still there....

    I do. They always feel stuffed, so i can either hold my nose and blow out, or kind of pop them by sort of using muscles in my neck or throat. its hard to explain, but either way they crackle/pop repeatedly.
