I have menieres disease.Had MRI earlier this week which triggered vertigo.Is there meds that can be prescribed 4spinning crackling in ear nausea?
Meniere's disease: Use of medications such as Antivert (Meclizine) is usually of no benefit in true Meniere’s Disease, even if it helps in other balance disorders.

Singer with left side: blocked ear, crackling ear, ear ache, swollen lymph under jaw & hoarse. Gp reffered to ENT - 6month wait. Any ideas please?
Ear exam: It's unfortunate that a physician cannot or will not examine your ear to see whether it's blocked or the drum is inflamed and/ or infected. In case the eustachian tube in back of the nose is blocked(which would cause pressure to build up in the ear), irrigate your nasal passages with warm salt water and try a decongestant nasal spray for a short time.

May be: Crackling in the ear is pretty non-specific. An abnormal ear sound can occur from something within the ear itself, or with the sinus passages around the ear.
