What can cause tinnitis, pain and crackling in both ears other than tmj, etd and inner ear infection?
See otologist: Sounds like you've seen an ENT doc. I think you need a more specialized opinion. From an otologist. An otologist is an ENT doc who has done a fellowship in ear disease only.

Can you have meniere's disease without vertigo and tinnitus or ringing. My symptoms are ear pressure, fullness and mild - mid pain in one ear...?
Had undetected inner ear inf. Caused insomnia and loss some hearing took several antibiotics to resolve is there a reason this could happen ?
Reason for what?: You have several questions combined into one, and i'm not sure which part you're asking about a "reason" for. If an ear infection causes pain, it will interfere with sleep (resulting in insomnia). Hearing loss can also occur at least temporarily. Some antibiotics can affect hearing long-term. I suggest asking the physician treating you these questions, since s/he knows your case best. ...Read more
I have a constant reoccuring ear infection that causes frequent ringing. Leading to dizziness and motion sickness. What home remedies are there?
Not an infection: You are describing meniere's syndrome not an ear infection. Meniere's syndrome is classically defined as intermittent tinnitus, vertigo and hearing loss. In the absence of significant pain which does not let up it is most not likely an infection. I'd recommend seeing an ENT when you are symptomatic for a good ear exam and hearing test. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
