ETD: Ears popping with swallowing or jaw movement, most commonly, is due to eustachian tube dysfunction. The eustachian tube connects the middle ear with the back of the nose.

A few things: If you literally mean water in your ears, some ear canals are shaped in a way to trap water or even have excess ear wax that can trap water. Over the counter drying agents like swim-ear can help remove the water. Your pcp can check to see if your ears are filled with wax. Eustacian tube dysfunction can prevent your ears from draining. Allergies can also cause this. See your md if this persists. ...Read more
Agree w Dr. Wyatt: It may represent barotrauma - this could occur at deeper or shallower depths. You referred to "deep water". You haven't told us if this is breath hold diving, scuba diving, surface supplied air, mixed gas or what. Your dive profile will help provide a clue as to cause. A brief shallow dive well within dive tables will not likely cause dcs. Give more info to get more info. Can re-ask. ...Read more

Ear wax remover: The druggist can direct you to ear wax removers, but since ears are delicate and hearing is a sense i'd hate to damage or lose, i'd probably visit a doctor or clinic so they could evaluate the reason. Swimming can introduce unknowns as can other activities I can't begin to imagine. Don't poke or pick your ears! That's a dangerous thing to do, but warmth may melt the waxy stuff if that's what it is. ...Read more
