So I've already posted about this before but I am going to try again.

It is the most annoying thing everrr.

Whenever I hear a loud noise, or I cough, or do anything loud, it causes this reaction in my left ear and makes it pop or snap in response. It's been doing this on and off for like 6 years. It's just the left ear and no pain, but just the really really annoying sound. It makes me HATE loud places or voices or things. I literally get so angry when something makes it go off, like my roommate's screaming two year old. AHHHHH i just want to rip my ear off.

For some reason it went away for a week when I was sick and super congested and stuff which seems weird but it was gone. I could hear any loud noise and no popping happened.

So now I just stay in my room once again because I want avoid anything that will make it go off. Pretty boring and sad life. 

It gets super sensitive at times and even the toilet flushing will make it go off. Then other times it doesn't. But right now it's getting bad again and I'm super pissed about it.

Why can't I just have normal ear/ears like everyone else?

Help please??

I haaate it! It gets me so annoyed. Have you heard of tensor tympani syndrome or stapedial myoclonus? I have heard of people getting surgery to cut the tendons or muscles in the ear that cause spasming. It's hard to find someone specialized enough to really know about this it seems.
Also, have you ever tried muscle relaxants for it?

Describe your experience or the sensation a little more if you can.

Thank you.

what is ldl and trt?

Mine pops/spasms when I do other things too like cough, sneeze, yell, laugh hard, cry, wiggle my ear. All those things can produce the snap spasm thing.

Yes, I can undestand you. I have a vibration inside my ear  when I speak. Also I would like to know what can I do for not feel this more. While, I try to speak low and sometimes not speak.

When I have algicusy this vibration is more often.

Before this problem I spoke too much, now I speak little. Seems difficult to find a good balance in this live.

my specialist say that the inner cells regeneration is the solution but Im not sure...

I had this, for a long time, but now it is almost unnoticeable.

What do you mean, it is just gone now? Or you are used to it?

How long did you have it?

Sometimes mine goes away for a period of time and i can tolerate sounds, but then it will come back again and I don't know why. Very frustrating and i hate those times i have to be so aware of noises.

Yep, I have this too. It hates certain sounds(my left ear) and becomes reactionary to them. Im just learning to accept it.

Hi ranajjar and all posters,
Please update!  Have you been able to locate any further assistance in diagnosing or treating these conditions?  I have a very similar symptom (among others) and am looking for relief anywhere.  Please update!  (Also if you're just reading this post, please register and share your experience... it's good to be able to find people online that have similar experiences and you never know where you will find something that will help you-- especially when so few specialists seem to know anything about these sorts of conditions.)
Thanks

I had the exact same sensation and I saw an ENT here in Phoenix. I got inner ear surgery (tubes) in both ears.. Though my right was much worse than my left. The problem started either by listening to extremely loud music, or from a flight a took when I was really congested. I don't know. But anyways, the surgery went well and the popping has stopped in the left, and is much much better in the right.
