Thanks for your reply.
There are few possible causes for your symptoms. This can be an infection of the inner ear, can be a condition called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo which can occur after head trauma but crackling noises are not there. Crackling noises in the ear can be due to problem in inner ear but sometime middle ear problems can cause this too but the dizziness definitely means that there is some problem going on in your inner ear. I suggest that you should visit your ENT doctor at the earliest because you are in need of complete examination and investigations like Pure tone audiometry etc. Till you visit your ENT doctor you can take OTC tab Prochlorperazine thrice daily for three days, this will help you with dizziness. If you develop one of the following symptoms you should visit even ER because in that case you may need some immediate advise. These includes worsening of sounds in ears, hearing loss etc.
Again my advise will be an earliest possible visit to ENT doctor and if not possible due to holidays then local doctor or ER.
I hope this helps you.
