clicking sounds when I swallow my saliva

User Profile
I had this weird thing since I was 14 y/o. Every time I swallow my saliva (of course as humans we do that)I hear a clicking sound. I don't know what it is. I should tell that I already consulted my physician and she told me that there's nothing wrong with my ears (no infection or anything). But she did advice me to go to an EENT. I didn't go since this clicking sounds don't really bother me (they're not painful, and I only here them every time I swallow my saliva). I did ask our family dentist and she told me that my wisdom tooth is already erupting. It makes sense actually since I have a small face and probably, I hear those clicking sounds since then 'cause my wisdom tooth is having a hard time erupting. Our dentist didn't really checked my oral cavity but she did ask me a few signs and then she said her thought about it. What do you think?

Do you have problems with allergies. They plague me nearly year round and I sometimes have a clicking sound when I swallow. It has something to do with being stuffed up.
If this is not an issue for you, I am at a loss.

no I'm sorry, I have skin asthma but not that kind of allergy. I hear clicking sounds every time I swallow my saliva but only that, I don't hear it every time I swallow my food or drink..

I hear an odd clicking sound inside my ears almost every time I swallow my saliva. It occurs in either my left ear, right ear, or both. It doesn't click that much when I swallow food or drinks, but it happens once in a while. It started a few weeks ago and won't go away. It gets really annoying during school. It isn't painful, just really annoying.
