Hello doctor,

When I am in a quiet room and concentrate sometimes I hear very low sound in my ear. I have observed that this is the same sound we get when we cover our ears with finger or hand. I thought it was because of wax build-up, so I got many ear tests done, which all came back normal. Is this because I am anxious and stressed sometimes? I concentrate a lot on such minor stuff. Sometimes, I concentrate on a dark surface and see certain things moving, but my eye tests also came back normal. Am I too anxious?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • This is quite common for individuals with anxiety. Probably, this might be an early manifestation of an anxiety neurosis. Do not be in a negative mood with what I said.
  • At this stage, it is easy to manipulate it by proper counseling by a senior psychiatrist. Do not worry, as I do not think it is very serious. It is very common nowadays in a stressful life.

Do consult a psychiatrist and take counseling, it will help you for sure.

Thank you doctor,

I am already taking anxiety medicine. So you mean, this sound and other minor stuff are normal physiology of the human body and nothing to worry about?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • It is a part of the same anxiety problem. They are not normal physiology. As you are on medicines, it might improve in future.
