When I swallow or chew gum, my ears click. Is this normal?

Ear vs TMJ: Having popping/clicking TMJ noises not necessarily a problem. Many people experience these noises. Without pain or limitation of function the noise itself is not an issue.

Ears pop and make a clicking sound when swallowing. Slight dizziness and visual disturbances?

Not all related: The popping of the ears can be easily explained by Eustachian tube opening when you swallow. This is absolutely normal and you are just aware of a normal physiological activity. The slight dizziness is too non-specific to comment on. Both of these symptoms are probably not related to the visual disturbance. But certainly consult an eye physician for the latter problem. ...Read more

Even if related to allergy, oral antihistamines often are not potent enough to relieve symptoms, especially if severe enough to cause eustachian tube dysfunction (inability to clear fluid from middle ear). ...Read more
