      Hi,

      For the past 2-3 years I've experienced twitching/fluttering sensation inside my right ear. It happens sometimes when I swallow or when I snort. Also happens on its own every time when I'm trying to fall asleep which makes it really hard to sleep. Usually takes me 2 - 3 hours to fall asleep because of this. It lasts for 0.5 - 1.5 second which makes it impossible to get used to as it's not constant like other TTTS symptoms. I think it might has to do with sinuses or eustachian tube because when I have nasal drip and take a snort it acts as a trigger. Also if my left palm or left side of my back gets itch it happens. I can make it flutter for longer on my will if i start to tickle my left palm. It is weird.

      I need to fix this somehow because it's affecting my work hard as I can't sleep normally.

      Thanks
      Nik

      I mean I’m just guessing but it sounds like some kind of nerve impingement or something if it’s triggered by your hand and side and you can manipulate it based on your palm.

      So probably an MRI of your spine. As far as tinnitus and MRI’s lots of posts on the board about which types of MRI machines to use and avoid etc and using hearing protection. I’d research those beforehand.

      Have you talked to a doctor about this at all?

      Its also triggered by my sinuses because it can happen when I snort and feel some mild pressure, like when my nose is stuffed. I have been to the doctors they have checked my ears, everything seems fine to them and they have no clue but gave me a nasal spray and it helps a bit, but does not solve the problem.
      This has started to control my life, the lack of proper sleep in long term and frustration is hard. I really need to solve this.
      Thank you, so much.
