Ear pressure, popping

Postby jackiemb » Wed Mar 19, 2008 9:08 am

For the past couple of months, my son's ears have been driving him crazy. They feel full, pop sometimes and make it hard for him to hear. He is 9 and was decompressed a year and a half ago. The NSG said this isn't a common Chiari symptom, but I have seen it listed before. The pediatrician says the middle ear is fine. Has anyone had this experiece? Has anyone found anything that helps?

Hi Jackie,

There was a recent post on another forum about this. I'm thinking it was maybe a month or so ago. You can probably search on ears ringing/popping, or similar, and find the post. I believe it was mentioned that it could be related to increased pressure or CSF.

Take care and I hope Ethan gets relief from this soon. It's very annoying.
GOD Bless!

My daughter mentions this a lot! Also a "crackling" sound. Sounds like Chairi to me.
