Question Loud ticking noise in right ear

Hi, I came across Health Boards when I was trying to find out more about Palatal Myoclonus on the net. I am wondering if anyone else is in the same or similar boat as me? About 12 months ago I started to get a really loud clicking noise that I could hear in my right ear. I had intense pressure on the right side of my head and neck and constant aching at the back of my ear. I was really off balance and dizzy at times. The clicking noise is really distracting and often over powers other noises around me. I am finding this all very stressful and depressing. This all started in August last year when I had a mild flu and had to fly home to Tasmania after my Pa passed away. My GP referred me to an ENT specialist who was amazing and took action as soon as I mentioned that my Husband could hear the ticking noise when it was quite. I had an endoscopy an MRI and a cat scan of my sinus, and the conclusion was that I had essential palatal myoclonus. I was told that PM is a rare condition, one that an answer can’t always be provided when the question of “what caused this to happen”, is asked. Because I am only at the start of my journey to conquer this condition I was wondering if anyone else can relate to my symptoms or has some words of wisdom?

Re: Loud ticking noise in right ear

I've never heard of the pm you've mentioned but I've had clicking in my right ear for about 8 years now. It started out with vertigo and lead me to have anxiety. My doctor just told me allergies were the cause and put me on all kinds of allergy medications that didn't help, she then prescribed antivert which helped! I had a pressure and fluid feeling inside my ear and the antivert seemed to dry up the fluid which helped alot. It's weird because my boyfriend can hear my ear popping too if he puts his ear near my head! I'm gonna look into that PM you mentioned.

Re: Loud ticking noise in right ear

Hi Bethy, Sorry to take so long to reply. I have actually been away having botox in my mouth to stop the palatal muscle from twitching. I am pleased to say that the clicking noise has disappeared and the process wasn’t that painful at all. I have to now have botox every 4-6 months to stop the clicking noise. I was also really stressed out and depressed because of the pressure and the ticking noise. I am pleased to say that after 12 months of putting up with the constant tick that I have finally been able to enjoy the peace and quite in my head. Please let me know how you get on.
