Severe Ear Twitch and Crackling Heartbeat?!

for the past 3-4 months, i have been hearing a strange muffled heartbeat with crackles that coincide with it every single day. sometimes it's really loud and other times it's pretty quiet. it's kind of weird, because not only do i HEAR the heartbeat and crackles, i can actually FEEL the subtle popping of the crackles, and it's only in my right ear. the other thing that has been bothering me about my ear, is that it is constantly twitching up and down and side to side. it's also literally being pulled backwards against my head. i have searched all over trying to find out what it is and what's causing it, and i can find absolutely nothing. can someone please help? i'd greatly appreciate it.  thank you.

Hi and thanks for using the forum.

YOu might want to try seeing an ENT.  YOu could have something like a chronic sinus infection that is causing the muffled hearing and "popping".  In the meantime, you could try a decongestant (if you can take one)- it may help clear your ears and relieve the popping.  Good luck.
