| | Unusual Ear Drum Vibrations with high pitched sounds
My ears are normal except for a strange sensation when certain "tin-ee" sounds occur. Whenever I hear a certain telephone ring, or hear change clang together, or hear small metal parts (nuts, bolts, nails, etc.) clang together, I feel my right ear drum vibrate and pulse. At first I didn't correlate the sound with the pulse/vibration but I began to realize that whenever a certain phone in my office rang, my ear drum vibrated. It doesn't hurt, but feels like more of a sonic vibration that is slightly uncomfortable. It always happens when I hear these certain sounds (small metal parts touching or phone) but the rest of the time my ears are fine. This has been happening for at least 3 years. Any clues into what this could be???
