Hello..I am new here and I am hoping to receive some guidance/help. I am 38 years old, in good health/weight.
About 10 years ago, I was under a lot of stress (mentally-work/home related, and physically--recovering from a bad case of Candida, which gave me cold like symptoms for a year) and had various symptoms of stress that would come and stay for up to a few months then go away permanently, such as: insomnia, body muscle twitches, digestive issues such as indigestion, muscle tension, clamminess, anxiety, etc. One of the symptoms was also this twitching in both ears. This was pretty ongoing/chronic and eventually it lessened and lessened until I was simply left with the twitching in my left ear and it was only activated when I laid down on my right side. It's been ten years and I would like to at least understand what it could be, if not find a solution.
I still suffer from mild anxiety and slight dizziness (and slight balance problems from the dizziness) and am not sure if it was generalized anxiety I developed from that time period (which can cause dizziness) or if the dizziness is caused by the ear problem which is promoting anxiety.
I have seen several doctors who have looked into my ear, saw nothing and dismissed the whole problem. I am not sure what I can do at this point. I have seen a neurologist regarding MS, had an MRI, and nothing was found. Could it be viral? Is it a form of tinnitus? Could there have been some damage from that period ten years ago?? Is there a doctor out there that would be interested enough to at least help me solve this mystery, and if so, how would I go about finding a referral or good recommendation. At this time, I have no GP to recommend me.
