I've had this very same problem for a couple of years now. It turns out it was related to my chronic sinusitis. In October of 2005 I stopped smoking and that's when I realized this problem started. I thought I had a brain tumor the first time I got a severe case of sinusitis, you see I have always been very healthy. The think I started doing differently was popping several allergy pills and nasal decongestants. Anyhow I got a horrible case of sinusitis where my ears were crackling so loud that I couldn't sleep. I guess my eustachian tube had been clogged up. Well I then developed these sharp stabbing headaches associated with the sinus infection and that was it. My anxiety started and I began researching the net because I never had this. I walked over the the ER and they did a CT scan and found that I had severe swelling in my ethmoid, and maxillary sinuses. I then went to an ENT and was perscribed Avelox. Well to make a long story short, I began getting these infections ever month after that. I was convinced I was growing a tumor or something. I couldn't have an MRI because I have metal in my mouth from a prior surgery. I was on Nasonex, Flonase and Avelox ever other month. I started to find that these infections became worst around my period. Anyhow, I then found out I had a Nasal Polyp and I was perscribed Predisone which instantly shrunk the polyp. And I felt much clear for the first time. However one ENT wanted to do surgery and another said I didn't need it. I was tested for Tinnitus and my test came back positive. I did a series of 3 Predisone steriod treatments this past year and still the crackling ears continued. I developed insomnia as a result. It was horrible. Oh a side note, I tested negative for all allergies. Well, I recently moved from Jersey City, NJ to Arlington, VA to work in D.C. and I had yet another horrible bout with sinusitis this past week. This time I did some research on fungal sinusitis and I kid you not. I took a yeast infection medication (monostat) put it on a q-tip and stuck it up my nose. It instantly started to work on openning my nose but the crackling still existed. Anyhow, just yesterday I was talking to a friend who gave me the greatest advice. They said they had the same problem and what worked for them was that they simply threw out all of their medication (in the trash) and stopped cold turkey and took a herbal medicine "fenugreek" and it cleared it up. Well I took some yesterday myself and I kid you not, today is the second day I've been on this stuff and my ears have completely stopped crackling for once and for all..... I SAY STOP THE MADNESS WITH THE PRESCRIPTION MEDS AND GO GET HERBAL MEDS. TAKE FENUGREEK FOR THIS PROBLEM. OUR BODYS ARE MADE TO NATURALLY HEAL THEMSELVES. FENUGREEK WILL CLEAR YOUR SINUSES. THESE DOCTORS ARE PRACTING MEDICINE, YOUR BODY IS A GUINEA PIG FOR THEIR MEDS. DON'T JEAPORDIZE YOUR HEALTH ANY LONGER.
