Hoping for some advice here. Last August I felt what can only be described as a trembling in my left ear.
As time as gone on this trembling because what can best be described as a spasm that I can feel and hear. Its like a continuous process of tension and relax within my ear canal with a bass like sound, similar to a car going past you with the bass turned up. I've had 3 occasions when its been appalling, like having a helicopter inside my head. Mainly it is a rumbling sound with a physical feeling, with a dull ache in my eardrum and a weird, slightly numb feeling in my left cheek.
Its so strange because if I shake my head it stops, if I plug my ear canal tightly with a finger it stops and then will slowly start to come back after maybe 10-15 seconds. And to make it even more bizarre it can go away for a week, or a few days and it will be like I have no problem at all.
So from a bit of research and a bit of gut instinct I think I have middle ear myoclonus, which is a treatable condition as I understand it. For whatever reason a muscle/tendon is making my eardrum vibrate. Now I'm currently going through ENT on the NHS and as personable they have been, I don't seem to be getting very far.
Has anybody out there suffered from this? I'm willing to seek out any avenues to get this sorted, private doctors, etc
