Random zinging sensation in my head.

I have issues with a random zinging in what feels like the right side of my head. It's not tinnitus (I have that too, but the zinging sound is not constant).

The sound usually comes in 3s (zing zing zing) or 5s. It's worse when I first wake up, though it usually goes away after 20-30 min. But can also happen randomly throughout the day. The only other issue besides the noise is a feeling like my right eyeball twitches. So I get a bit disoriented. Altough it doesn't happen every time I hear a zing.

I've had an MRI of my head and neck done, as well as an EEG (as a baseline test for the dementia that runs in my family). Both came back normal.

I don't have any issues with headaches, or any other imparements associated with this. Although I do have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. However, I belong to 2 support groups, and I ran this past them. No one else has experienced anything like this.

Any insight you can give would be greatly appreciated.
