I have been dealing with my right ear poping for almost 3 weeks now! I have had my ear(s) pop before, but not on a regular basis, and aleast 15 times a day.

I had ear problem since I blew both of them in the US Army in 1995, and haven't had this before!

Any help is encouraged!

Thanks,

Tony

Anthony, do you have any hearing at all? The reason I ask, a few days before I lost my hearing, I had horrible cracking and popping in both my ears. After talking to my audiologist, he told me that was a sign of coming close to losing my hearing completely.

Also, after researching and reviewing my work from college, I have found a few reasons why this might happen: allergies, weather change (pressure in the environment), or Eustachian tube problems. I would suggest contacting an audiologist or an ENT for further information. You never know if it is a serious problem.

Thanks Nadezda83! I have some hearing in the right ear, I don't have a hearing fitted for that ear because of prior ongoing problems! I'll call my ENT monday, and see if I can get in! It's just weird that it a all of a sudden thing, and it has been happening daily!

Thanks for your input!

There are many reasons why your ears could be popping

It is caused by a your ear equalising the pressure inside and outside of the ear.

This can be caused by something as simple as a cold but could be a much more serious infection.

The common cure to stop popping is to hold your nose and blow hard but this can result in more damage as what ever is blocking the ear can be blown into hardful areas.
