      So after a year of T (and gaining a new tone due to my stupidity) I have noticed that I can move my eardrum at will? Not like the TT fluttering that people get (though I've had that too at the beginning) but like I can flex the muscles by my ear and make the eardrum move. I'm assuming this isn't exactly a normal or good thing is it?

      I seriously doubt you can do that. It's physically probably impossible.

      You are imagining it, but you should go to an ENT so he or she can confirm if that's really happening.

      Because its meant to be flexed by normal sound, not your will....you might sensitize it....why not leave your internal organs alone, you dont try to flex your heart? - it does its own flexing.

      I can do it. I noticed it when I was a kid, yawning. I can also wiggle my ears and bend my thumbs backwards. We're gifted.
