      Tinnitus Since:
      Hello everyone,

      I seem to be experiencing an unusual fluttering noise, as well as my T. It seems to start when I hear a loud noise- such as knives and forks being places in a draw, hearing cellotape being used. Just wondering what on earth it is? It feels like it's my eardrum. Should I be worried?

      Many thanks,

      Not at all, it's TTTS AKA tensor tympani Syndrome, it's an over protection commanded by your brain before/when a sound is coming up to you.

      i got this all the time when talking, it only disappear when i'm in a noisy environnement , i guess my tympani is too busy vibrating to be tensed by the strapedius muscles :)
