For about a month I have had this loud ear click in my left ear when I swallow. I can also hear it if I flex/voluntarily open up my ear. There's no sign of congestion, infection, sinus problem, nor any pain or pressure. It is just a click/snap sound when I swallow now. It's pretty annoying and distracting and I've never had this problem before. Might I add that I am 5 months pregnant so I don't know if that would have something to do with the onset of this problem.View Thread
I have recently developed this loud click in my left ear when I swallow. I'd say it happens about 80% of the time I swallow, so not quite every time. But that's still often enough to drive me nuts! I haven't had a cold or any infections, no congestion, and there is no pain or pressure associated with it. I can kind of feel the click in my ear as well as hear it, and it's pretty loud. I will also add that it started in my 4th month of pregnancy about a month ago. But it really has been driving me nuts, keeping me up at night and overall giving me a lot of anxiety whenever I eat or have to swallow. It's soooo annoying.View Thread
