vibrating eardrum
jessica008 posted:
my left eardrum keeps vibrating to certain sounds i hear. if i talk or shout lodly or someone around me talks loudly it will vibrate. when driving down hill it feels up with air and then a few minutes later it pops. then everytime i eat drink or swallow the ear clicks loudly. last night my left ear was aching so i went to bed early. about a week ago it rang for about an hour then stopped. i told my parents and they took me to see a doctor and he said that it might be wax in the ear so he took some out but it was still vibrating when i got home so i went back two more times and eachtime he said both ears were clear. i then became worried because i didnt know what else it could be and now one month on since january 11th it has still been vibrating. im meant to be seeing an ear specialist soon but i dont think they will be able to help and im afraid they will say that nothing can be done. what should i do?? is there any cure? what could have caused this?

Your next step is to see an ENT specialist. This is really the ONLY way you can be properly diagnosed and treated. Right now, you do NOT have a definitive diagnosis, so there is really no way one can discuss cures...or know what can be done.
