Fluttering in right ear.
Hello. I'm a 31 year old male in otherwise good shape. Since the fall, i've been experiencing a random fluttering sensation in my right ear. Some days are worse than others. It may bother me for a whole day or it may subside for 2-3 days before recurring. I went and saw an ENT doctor and was prescribed a nasal steroid, which cleared it up for a month, but then it started randomly again. I again went back to the same ENT and he gave me a refill of the same nasal steroid, but it hasn't changed the condition this time. Some background: i grind my teeth at night, which the ENT was noncommittal that it would be causing it directly. I have scheduled with my dentist to get a mouthguard made, but in the meantime i'm desperately looking for relief as this fluttering is a major distraction to me at work and mentally just gets me down. Please help, thanks.
