Re: Ear Fluttering/Spasm
Hi, try looking up middle ear myoclonus. I have had that from time to time since last fall. Mine is sound-responsive...sound (radio, certain voices) makes a muscle in my middle ear twitch and thump. It is much like an eyelid twitch, my ENT said...very annoying but not life-threatening. I have a muscle relaxant prescription that seems to help calm it down during flare-ups. It's gotten MUCH less frequent than it was when it started...maybe once or twice a month, I'll have a temporary flare-up.
I have read that this condition usually is temporary or burns itself out, but there is a surgery that can be done if it's persistent.
