thanks for using justanswer
ear popping and ringing can occur with the sinus and ear infection
it is commonly seen
with antibiotic and steroid use the infection should heal within 3 to 4 weeks
if it does not heal , the antibiotic sensitivity of the discharge should be done
the ear needs to be examined by the Ear Nose Throat Doctor
I'm now physically feeling alot better but popping, ringing and clogged feeling persist. Does this, perhaps, signal that I'm still "draining" and my ear tube is not yet fully functioning properly?
Yes sometimes the fluid does remain behind even after the infection has resolved
and hence the ear tube may not function properly
drainage of the fluid is sometimes done by the ENt surgeon
