Eardrum twitches suck

Postby emmie.s on April 30th, 2014, 10:34 am

The most annoying twitches in my honest opinion are eardrum twitches. Tongue twitches are pretty annoying too, but the sound of an insect incessantly flapping its wings in your ears (especially when you're trying to sleep) really truly sucks.
After a hotspot-free period due in part to attitude adjustment and diet changes, I go and get a cold virus, which of course causes inflammation and in turn sets my system off. Why am I not surprised. I went to an ENT specialist several years ago due to this, and he offered to botox my eardrum or sever the tiny muscle, which sounded ridiculous but now maybe it makes sense??? Hmmm...
Fingers crossed that this will pass really soon. They seem to have decreased today, which is awesome. I've had this crap for years and years, and I am at the point where ALS, MS etc doesnt even cross my mind, so I am thankful for that at least.

I have them too, now and then and dislike them as well. But I hate the vagina-twitches the most. Ever had them? No? Then you are so lucky! The suck big time...

Sometimes when I hiccough, I get three distinct thumps in my right ear and it's done. I have tinnitus outside and apart from the BFS thing (too much loud music in the 80s) but this is something very different- hard thumps in my ear. Strange thing this BFS is.

Are you talking about that clicking you get in your ears?

Ugh! Eardrum twitches are the worst!
Not painful at all for me, but annoying as heck. It sounds/feels like a bubble popping in my ear. Grrrr....
I also have tinnitus (oh the 80s) so its double-plus-ungood.

Nope, although every singe time I swallow or yawn my ears click. I'm talking about a popping noise. When it's big, its like a thump. Other times its EXACTLY like a bug flapping its wings rhythmically and very rapidly in my ear. Basically, the sound of a twitch, if you can imagine. The ENT that took a peek years ago with one of those ear magnifying things thankfully did it while it was twitching, so he actually saw the tiny muscle (tensor tympani I think) thumping away. He said it was very rare but not unheard of. Years later I realized its all BFS. But I am happy to report that (knock on wood) they're gone. Clean living, clean eating LOL! Or maybe it just out twitched itself and next week it will be another body part..all I know is that its gone for now :D
