Crackling Ears From Flying with Cold

I was on holiday earlier in the year and while on holiday, I caught a cold.

I still had the cold on my flight back home and during descent, my ears clogged up with the pressure and I was unable to equalise them. It was extremely painful. Once off the plane, I couldn't equalise them so I had to sleep it off.

Ever since then, I have had a crackling in my ears everytime I swallow, eat or drink. It's driving me insane.

I have been to the doctor multiple times and they have tried antibiotics and Beconase Nasal spray with no improvement. It sounds like there is something sticky inside my ears.

I am due to see the doctor today so I'd appreciate any advice that I could say to the doctor to help me get this fixed.
