I have just started having this strange puffing sound in my ears. It's not loud, but very annoying. There will typically be three puffs in quick succession, sometimes followed by a fourth one after a second or so. Then there will be a gap of several seconds before the whole thing repeats. It seems to be in both ears, but I could be mistaken about that. The left is definitely more, however. I have a respiratory infection, so I'm thinking it must be connected. Thanks for any leads.
