In the last 10 days I’ve been woken out of my sleep with a start because of my left ear popping so loudly. It actually makes me cry out in alarm! It’s not the ear I’m sleeping on.
Has anyone else experienced this?

My ears do that. It doesn't wake me up though. I have narrow ear canals and the wax builds up . They pop when they need cleaning.
Perhaps it's wax build up.
A visit to the GP or Practice Nurse will tell you.

I have blocked sinuses and my ears pop as the gunge moves.

I’ve no cold symptoms and can’t understand why the popping shakes me out of my sleep 🤔
