What could cause ear crackling when I move my jaw?

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.

What could cause the ear crackling when I move my jaw slightly? It is not associated with any noticeable amount of pain.

Normal: All of the joints in the body produce a small amount of gas bubbles. This is a common thing noticed as a cracking or popping in the joint. You hear it in you ear because the joint of the jaw is close to it and the sound conducts through the bone to the ear. So long as you have no pain there is nothing to worry about.

Eustachian Tube: Your middle ear is trying to equalize but can't. Sounds like there is still fluid present in the middle ear and can't drain out the eustachian tube. Ask your doctor about using Clear. Ease Lozenges - www. Grossan. Com. These are papain and bromelain enzymes designed for pilots and scuba divers who can't clear their ears. One four times a day melt in mouth between cheek and gums - the buccal pouch.

Ear crackling when I push my index finger in right ear. It clogs up when I lie down on my right side and in unclog it by pushing index fnger. Any advice?

Ear clogging: Follow up with an ENT doctor. Do you have sinusitis, allergies? reflux? . Ever had tubes in your ears, large tonsils? These conditions when lying down would cause drainage/blockage and clog the ear. Would elevate head of bed, if allergies, try Zyrtec, (cetirizine) if sinusitis consider zyrtec (cetirizine) and an antibiotic, If reflux consider omeprazole. Good luck

Please help for ist 4days- ear pain, eardurms (retracted), ear fullness then- tinnitus, ear crackling on swallow, earfullness (sometimes) no hearing loss?

Please help for ist 4days- ear pain, eardurms (retracted), ear fullness then- tinnitus, ear crackling on swallow, earfullness (sometimes) no hearing loss?

See an ENT doctor: Ear pain and fullness can be due to tmd (temporo-mandibular disorder). Retraction of drum may indicate eustachian tube obstruction, but that requires a specialist's observation. Crackling on swallowing is normal. The presence of normal hearing strongly indicates no pathology in the external or middle ear.

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.

Many possibilities: The most common cause of ringing (tinnitus) is hearing loss. At your age, it is unlikely that the cause of your tinnitus is hearing loss, but it needs to be ruled out.
