      I was wondering if anyone had experiences with a sort of inner ear twitch triggered by big yawns, holding in burps and sometimes stretching. These twitches don't really occur unless triggered by these actions. I've been to 3 ENTs and my ear appears fine.
      The twitch is sometimes fast and sometime slow and often twitch for hours on and off. Basically been having this for almost a month.
      Any help would be appreciated
      Thanks :)

      How is your jaw? Does it pop or click?

      There's no popping or clicking at all

      It's common but an ENT won't be able to help..Try looking into TrP therapy. .you can do it yourself...May be a tight scm muscle..tmj related..

      I also get this, it just started one month ago !! It only ever happens during the day if I do not control my burps or if I hiccup. If I let out a burp then my ear can twitch all day long and it drives me crazy. It also happens during the night so I am not sure if this is linked to a burp during the night. Its driving me crazy. I have started taking Magnesium as I have heard this helps. I started the Magnesium yesterday and only heard my ear flutter once last night. I do not have any symptoms today. But I am pretty confident the fluttering will be back tomorrow morning. Going to my GP tonight to get advice. I am also waiting on an ENT appointment but not for fluttering ear drums...but might be worth while to bring it up. I am hoping it will fade away soon !
