Hi. I'm experiencing clicking sounds in my head befind my left ear. It's accompanied by slight discomfort.
It happens daily, a few times a day. It's been happening for about a year.
I've been to my physician-no ear infection present.Nothing unusual was observed.
Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance for your reply.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. In absence of any ear infection this clicking sound can be due to pressure equalizing between the inside and the outside of your ear and Eustachian tube opening. This can also occur in sinus infections.

This can also be due to muscle twitchings inside the ear. You should consult an ENT specialist and get evaluated for both these possibilities.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
