i have this crawling sensation in the left ear and also ringing sound when everything is very silent for the past ten years. i have consulted some ENT specialist but that didn't help.can you suggest me as to what i should do?
the crawling sensation is not continous but it comes and goes ( around ten to twenty times a day and only in some months but not the whole year through)
If the first ENT specialist didnât help you, you may ask for a second opinion from another ENT-specialist. If ear damage is excluded, then you may consult a neurologist. A CT-scan or MRI of the head can help doctors to exclude possible neurological reasons for tinnitus. Be sure to check your blood pressure, too.
