Hello, this is my first crack explaining this issue in a forum and I have read plenty of forums with symptoms similar but not exactly like mine. So far I have been to 4 ENT's with no resolution to my problem and the last one telling me its in my head and not real, WOW. I have had all the hearing tests up to having an allergy test and have tried every decongestant and Nettie Pot with no fix. I have what would feel like a moderate pressure behind my right ear (fullness) that is there consistently, now if I hear a loud bang or dog barking my ear will make a crackling noise to the noise and sometimes just before it does it I hear a decompression sound and I can hear better in that ear, but its still crackling. This crackling does not hurt but is very annoying, it will stay with me until I go to bed. Wake up the next day, the sound is gone, but If a sound sets it off again, its an all day event, weird right? Something else I have noticed, if I'm like bending down changing a tire or working out on a decline bench the pressure behind my right ear gets stronger up to the ear popping then crackling to noises until I go to bed at night. Don't know if this is related but when flying, as the plane is descending I get a ridiculous pain in my forehead that is almost unbearable. The ENT'S say the drum is fine, no fluid behind the drum, maybe ETD. I can pop both ears and hold pressure with them as well, This issue has been with me now for 5 years and sometimes I can go a week or so with no issue, sometimes its every day like today. I feel if I take Ibuprofen for a headache or something, it will be a guarantee that the ear will crack the next day. I have been taking a dietetic (water pill) for some time now, its seems to help, but what the hell is causing my ear to do this?
