Can ear wax cause crackling sound?
When earwax accumulates and becomes impacted, it can cover the eardrum and cause you to experience crackling sounds in your ear. Each ear has a Eustachian tube that connects the throat to the middle ear, and the purpose of this tube is to prevent fluid and air pressure buildup within the ear.
Why do I hear noise when I swallow?
When you swallow, chew, or yawn, the eustachian tube – which connects the middle ear to the back of your throat – opens to allow the pressure inside your ear to be the same as the external environment. This equalises the pressure and can cause almost a popping like sound to occur.
Is ear popping a sign of infection?
When doctors refer to an ear infection, they usually mean otitis media rather than swimmer’s ear (or otitis externa). Otitis media with effusion is when noninfected fluid builds up in the ear. It might not cause symptoms, but in some kids, the fluid creates a sensation of ear fullness or “popping.”
What is the best decongestant for ears?

- Swallowing. When you swallow, your muscles automatically work to open the Eustachian tube.
- Valsalva maneuver.

How long does eustachian tube dysfunction last?
Most cases of Eustachian tube dysfunction clear up in a few days with the help of over-the-counter medication and home remedies, but symptoms can last one to two weeks. If you’re still having symptoms after two weeks, or they’re getting worse, you may need more aggressive treatment.
What are the symptoms of eustachian tube dysfunction?
Eustachian tube dysfunction may occur when the mucosal lining of the tube is swollen, or does not open or close properly. If the tube is dysfunctional, symptoms such as muffled hearing, pain, tinnitus, reduced hearing, a feeling of fullness in the ear or problems with balance may occur.

Can hear when I swallow?
When the Eustachian tube is working perfectly, it is closed and opens only very briefly when we swallow or yawn. There is a pulley-like muscle above the roof of our mouth that pulls it open when we swallow or yawn. Some people can actually hear a “crackling” sound every time this happens.
Is it normal to hear yourself swallow?
The symptom of hearing yourself breathe is called “autophony. Normally the eustachian tube remains closed except when we yawn or swallow, at which time it briefly opens to equalize the air pressure in the middle ear. Generally speaking, a patulous eustachian tube is harmless and requires no treatment.
