Crackling/popping in left ear

Hey everyone,
for a few days now i have been experiencing popping noises in my left ear. At first, i thought there was excessive ear wax but I continued to hear the noise even after cleaning my ear. I experience this popping everytime I yawn, burp, or just when i exert the same amount of pressure as a yawn or burp purposly, but not when i swallow. Just recently, the popping occurs even when i tilt my head slightly. I've searched around on a few forums, and have come down to the conclusion that it may just be fluid in my ear. However, I have not been exposed to water recently, and I have not been sick either. I've experienced similar feeling in the past, but not for this long. I dont know if this may be serious, but does anyone know the cause of this?
Thanks in advance
