Hi Rachel,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
This seems to be either eustachian tube dysfunction or wax in the ear, both of which needs an ENT evaluation.
Take care

Hi welcome to health care magic,
You may have wax in ear. If water while taking bath entered in the ear mix with wax and gives this type of sound.if you pull your ear up and down wax with water gives you crunching sound.
approach your doctor and wax is present he will clear it.
Take care..
