this sounds like chronic sinusitis. i dont want to go making diagnoses, since i am not a doctor, but my mother has had this problem since her early 20s and that is exactly the symptom she described. you may not have any fluid because it might have flared up and settled back down or the mucous might be too thick. you should check up on it online some more and see if it's something you might want to bring up. hope this helps!
I have the same problem. I was diagnosed with TMJ. A dentist can diagnose it for you. Mine is mostly on the left side but it pops and cracks and can get really annoying. Might want to make an appointment!
