Pop goes... my ear.

My ears keep popping... like when you are in an airplane... except I'm not going anywhere.

About two months ago, my ears started popping constantly. I need to consciously move a muscle to pop them (ie. yawn), but immediately after, they go right back to needing to be popped.
I saw a doctor and she didn't see anything from the ear side, and going up the sinuses, she said it was very slightly inflamed. She put me on some oral steroids for that, but they didn't help. She told me at the time she was diagnosing it something generic, I can't remember the exact term, but she described it as a "something is wrong" type diagnosis, and not a real cause identified.
What can I do to make this stop, it's extremely annoying. Heck, even ideas of what it could be would be helpful.
Do I just need to go to a specialist and see if they can do anything for me?
No pain, just annoyance
Hearing is just fine
I do look like an idiot yawning all the time.
