I really hope someone out there can help me find out what's wrong with me and my sister! We've both been dealing with strange symptoms since we were young! I've had what I termed "this weird breathing thing" since I could remember, and my sister has her "weird ear thing" as well. I know they may not sound related, but after researching many, many hours I believe that they may be related. The only diagnosis that matches my symptoms is vocal cord dysfunction, which is basically a spasm of the vocal cords. The only thing that matches my sisters symptoms is tensor tympani syndrome, which is a spasm of the eardrum. My thoughts on these two rare diagnoses is that there has to be some diagnosis that would encompass both sets of symptoms. What are the odds that 2 sisters would have 2 very rare medical conditions that are not somehow related? The fact that both of our symptoms involve muscle spasms makes me believe that something else is the cause! If anyone out there can offer any suggestions they would be very much appreciated! I know that I've only listed a few things, so if you have any questions to clarify please feel free to ask! Thanks so much!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
