It's hard to describe, but for about a week now, I've been getting a weird popping feeling below my left ear. It occurs when I hold a bubble of air in my mouth, and then I push on the left side of the mouth with it. It makes a gritty-like noise, and when I leave it be, my left ear feels as if it's under pressure, like on an airplane. The same area below the ear also hurts when I touch it. Should I be concerned?
