Hello. First to mention my ears feel muffled, and I hear popping sounds in both ears whenever I swallow and such. Now for just my right ear only, which really bugs me is this stupid vibrating sound. I only hear this when there is a loud noise. And not like a deafening sound just normal sounds. Whenever I clap my hands, drop a pencil, close a door, or even myself saying something loud, or someone else talking to me, my right ear vibrates for like a second. It's quick but happens hundreds of times a day because you can't escape sounds and it's hard for me to enjoy anything with this. Anyone else experiencing or have experienced this. I would like to know how to get rid of it.

Yeah, I suffered through something like that last summer. It's mostly just excruciatingly annoying, but whatever you do don't prod around in there with your finger or Q-tip as I did. It's not the worst thing in the world, but just causes a lot of irritation and overall increases your discomfort.

For me, it ended up being compacted earwax, as gross as that sounds. I personally had an actual ENT Doctor fix it, but I think they sell OTC ear syringe gear, too. It's instantly relieving and I highly recommend getting it taken care of sooner than later, just because of how annoying it is and for me the longer I waited the worse it got (granted, I poked at it lot as I said).

I hope it's nothing worse than that, I don't imagine it would be though. Either way, good luck!

Well Thanks guys. I had a clicking jaw. If you have tmj I would get rid of that first, because that could be causing the ears to do this. If you don't have tmj, then go to an ent and see what they say. Mine ain't as bad after doing the tmj exercises for a month, but still is there. I also have pet which is also could cause this. I wish you all luck.
