Customer Question

1.5 year ago I had have a very bad cold for 1 month, I was also singing a lot this time. One morning, I awakened with autophony, hyperacousis (during 2 months)
Now I have since one year a crackling/scratching noise in my both ears (90% the left) triggered by
- talking
- touching my skin near my ear and face.
- other's talking
- sudden loud sound
- also autophony in the beginning after exercice ( but no more now)
- hyperacusis ( very mild now)
I have seen a lot or top ENTs, chiropractors neurologistis a lot of medications, vitamines, massage, etc..but with no results
I don't know if I have :
- mild patulous eustachian tube
- myoclonus of the stapedian
- floppy ear deum
- mucus somewhere
The strange fact is that my condition is worsened when I stay in a quiet environment.
Im 30 years old man and my life has really been affected by this condition, talking is very stressful as the noise is like the sound of a mix between chimney crackling and sticky bubbles-
