Noises in ears.
Hello. For the past few years I have had a strange intermittent problem.
I have episodes where I hear noises in both ears that are akin to the noise you'd hear when you plug your nose and pop your ears. The noises are very momentary, less than a third of a second, and can occur 2 to 3 times per second. It is not just a sound, it is a sensation as well… feels like I am popping my ears but only slightly. It also feels as though I can feel a jumpy feeling in my chest at the same time this occurs. Example, If I feel/hear 3 of these in my ears I feel 3 "jumps" in my chest. There have been times where shutting my eyes tightly can cause the noise to occur but I can't always do this.
It usually only occurs when I am laying down to sleep or when I first wake up. It can continue for awhile after getting up but always goes away. Sometimes it goes away for months.
It is the strangest feeling and it worries me a little as I cannot find information about this. The correlation to the sensations in my chest are what worries me most… that and just not knowing. Sorry if I am not explaining this well… it's a very strange set of symptoms.
