Creeking Sound Behind Left Ear
FirstNormanKing posted:
I have recently had a sinus infection, upper respiratory tract infection, and an infected sebaceous cyst, during a business trip abroad. On the flight back home, while still sick, I developed a blocked and infected ear (left). While to ear infection has cleared, as have the other infections, I still have a bit of fluid attached to the ear drum, which my GP says will clear.

My concern is that after I go for a walk, or do any activity that gets my heart rate up, I get a creaking sound in my ear. It comes in intermittent pulses and is not in rhythm with my heart beat. After about 30 minutes to an hour it stops.

My doctor say that I probably have Eustachian tube dysfunction. Could this be the source of the creaking sound?
