      I get this weird sound in the affected ear, is it the eustachian tube trying to equalize air or is it just some movement of the tensor tympanic muscle?

      Either way, can this improved over time? Any supplement or medication to help relief this symptom?

      I get this sort of thumping or pounding in my let ear all the time. It's harmless and it usually goes away. My left ear also thumps in response to nail clipping or burping for reasons entirely unknown to myself. You could check with a doctor to see if wax is touching your eardrum. Though I wouldn't suggest you go to an ENT for this since it's harmless.

      Ototoxicity and probably cumulative noise exposure
      Sounds like eustachian tube dysfunction and/or ear myoclonus.

      Not sure about treatments, I have them both but not getting any treatment, muscle relaxants don't usually work because the muscles are so tiny and the spasms are local, meds that affect the whole body are usually quite ineffective..

      I seem to be going through the same things. Is there any way you cope with it/make it better? I'd love to know.

      It started two Fridays ago, end of November. I can't say I'm experiencing thumping, it's like reactive T. The cause could be ETD(which I know I have), Myoclonus, or TTTS.

      The links below are my most recent threads. Give them a read if you want to find out more. They are lengthy, though.
      Let me know what you think could be the cause.
