Eardrum throbbing/ear ringing/distorted hearing?/jaw obstructing ear canal
garretwiley posted:
For quite a while now I have been experiencing a sort of throbbing/shifting in my right eardrum that occurs during (and matches the beat of) certain sounds. Also, there's constantly ringing in my ears that I can always hear when it's quite enough (although it used to be an orchestra of ringing sounds). Also, my hearing is lousy, although it seems less about volume (that part seems to work well actually) and more about being able to distinguish words. Also, whenever I move my jaw, (with my finger) I can feel the end of it poking around in and changing the shape of my right ear canal. Also it seems that some muscles of the left side of my face (and the ones that curl the last two toes on my left foot) do not work; the motor movement I have in my face is noticeably asymmetrical; I also experience this in my jaw, for example the muscles in my jaw can get exhausted easily but It's only ever in the right side; I don't even feel a presence of the muscles in the left. Also, I've been in two serious car wrecks but I'm pretty sure most of these issues occurred before either, although not all are necessarily of concurrent origin.
