Hello friends my name is Vitor and i'm 19, in the past 4 years i've been having a few weird episodes that usually last 3 hours, during these episodes whenever i hear a noise (note: if the noise is too low i don't hear the crack) right in the end of it i hear a crack noise on my left ear, it usually only happens in the end of the noise like if i'm speaking to someone right in the end of a word or sentence i hear the cracking noise. Honestly in the beginning it didn't bother much, but lately it's been a real nuisance since it has been happening more often, i think it's important to state that i rarely use headphones and when i do i put it on the lowest volume possible and i'm hardly ever at noisy places i live in a really quiet neighborhood with no outside noise. I've been to an ENT and at first he thought i had a wax problem but after looking into my ear he noticed there was no wax problem and the ears looked fine and told me he didn't know what's going on and passed me an audiometry exam. I would like to know if you guys had ever felt like this or have any suggestion on what could it be.
