If it only happens upon lying down then, the most likely thing that I can think of going on that would have anything to do with a popping in the throat of a "bubble" would be some type of ACID REFLUX coming from the stomach....maybe? Get seen by your doc. ...Read more

Ears and sinuses: The crackling and popping sound is likely to come from blocked Eustachian tubes. Their job is to equalize pressure between the middle ear and the outside world. However, inflammation can cause them to swell shut. Chronic nasal and sinus congestion are probably coming from either chronic sinusitis or allergies. Might try an antihistamine or decongestant, but consider seeing your doctor to see if andecongestant, but consider seeing your doctor to see if antibiotic therapy appropriate ...Read more

Wheeze: This unusual location for a wheeze may also be caused by some mucus in the right bronchial tree and could be a form of asthmatic bronchitis. I would expect an associated cough if this were the case. Do you cough up any mucus? Do you wheeze if you take in a deep breath and blow it out forcefully through your mouth? If symptoms persist, see your physician for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
