TMJ: The most likely explanation is the temporomandibular joint (tmj). This joint is located just in front of the ear canal, and the sounds of the joint movements can often be detected by the nearby ear. This is called crepitus, the crunchy, crackling noise of the joint . Inflammation of the TMJ usually produces more noticeable crepitus. Other causes are hairs or wax in the ear canal. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

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. However, it's best to have an md examine you. ...Read more

Then see a TMJ specialist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
