Constant dizziness/head pressure for 3 months

Hello, one night I felt like I was getting sick (allergy symptoms, runny/blocked nose). Woke up the next morning and those symptoms were gone and left with a constant head pressure and dizziness. My only other symptoms which appeared a couple days later is that my ears are weird. So my left ear crackles after I hear a sound, I can trigger the crackle any time I want by literally clicking my fingers right next to my left ear. My right ear doesn't do this. My right ear has been very sensitive. It pops by itself, every day, and feels like it stays open for hours. I've been to an audiologist, had an MRI, blood test, all came back normal. ENT just said it was stress, because he couldn't find anything. Last night however, I had throbbing pains in my forehead. Once I woke up, I'd say it's 99% gone. I've tried nasal sprays, antibiotics, antihistamines, stemetil, nothing relieves my symptoms. Do you think it would be more ear related, due to crackling in left ear and popping in my right ear, or more sinus related? How would I go about treating this issue? Thanks.

Could be Eustachian tube dysfunction. If nasal sprays don’t help then one can try a grommet or ET Dilatation.
