Hi. I have been hearing a squishy fluid sound at the back of my head near my left ear. I also hear these loud cracking sounds from the back of my head?

In brief: Fluid behind eardrum

You may have fluid buildup begin the eardrum. Can be from allergies or a cold.
You may also have Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. This causes a lack of drainage from the middle ear into the throat and results in fluid buildup. Nasal steroids usually help.
