[QUOTE=JohnUK;3441257]Hi Lib,

Read your posts. Very interesting to say the least. Glad to read things have improved for you. I hope you maybe of assistance.

Originally you were dignosed with PET, but your eardrums were still moving with your breathing, suggesting your tensor tympani muscles were over active, not functioning correctly.

Is it true to say that autophony can be caused by a over active tensor tympani muscle?
When cutting this muscle, chewing sounds, etc can no longer travel to the hearing parts of the ear, and in theory stopping the autophony?

My understanding is that the tensor tympani muscle dampens vibrations from when chewing foods. If we cut this muscle and it does not give relief from symptoms, is it possible to rebuild the muscle?

Hope to hear from you. Thank You.

john,
mine was a very complex case, i have myoclonus in the middle ear and e tube.
so my symptoms were multiple. cutting the tendons for me worked to alleviate a lot of symptoms but not all.....but its so much better i am living with the rest much better.
for me my voice was lous and would cause spasms in my ears, and certain facial movements when breathing through my nose caused the wind/flutter sound.
i am unsure if the tendons can be rebuilt, but i do know they are cut for various surgeries so its not uncommon. i am grateful to have had the surgery and have no regrets at all.

Thanks for writing:)

Did cutting the tensor tympani tendon stop your autophony?

Can you please tell me about your autophony?

Voice Autophony?
Eating/Chewing Autophony?
Breathing Autophony?
Heartbeat Autophony?

Finally did you get flickering eyes?
