An itch anywhere on my body will cause the noise in my ear. Sometimes coming into contact with hot water such as when taking a bath will trigger it too. There's no associated pain but I can often feel when it's going to happen. It's not a background sounding noise as with tinnitus ringing, it's loud.
I visited my local GP when I was around 4 and he was stumped at the time and suggested it may be some hypersensitive nerve.
Any idea why this noise would happen only when I get an itch if it's some bone or ear drum issue? And will this cause me any issues as time goes on? My hearing is fine and I've never experienced any pain, so - although it's annoying - I would likely not seek any treatment unless there's a chance it will cause me problems in the future.
Sorry to go on! I really appreciate your responses :)
I forgot to mention that a few months back I did a general search 'rumbling noise in ear' and found articles relating to the tensor tympani (?) muscle. Could it be something as simple as this?
