Essential tremor in right hand, diaphragm, chin, back of throat, fluid leakage from ear. Suggestion?

i have essential tremor . I m 59 years old. It started in my neck, more like cervical dystonia especially when I tried to hold the tremor back. As the years progressed, my head begin to tremor more and more and now I have the tremors in my right hand, diaphram, chin , and sometimes in the back of my throat. I ve even had tremors in my right leg from time to time. In the past year the tremors are beginning on the left side, mainly my thumb . I have had tinnitus mainly in my right ear, but it s spreading to my left ear, with different musical tones, mainly in my right ear. For much of my life, my left ear would go deaf for a second and i would hear a low musical tone and then my hearing come back. Now my right ear has done that a few times. it will go deaf for a second. An ENT said it was possible I had, I forget the term, but some kind of leakage of fluid in my middle ear . I ve also have developed a clicking sound mainly in my right ear. Do you think the ear problems would be related to the essential tremor. Recently in my left ear, it went deaf for a second and I heard a musical tone so loud it hurt. I don t know if I should talk to a neurologist on an ENT. All of the symptoms worsen under stress. I recently went into the hospital with severe PTSD. but I don t think that has anything to do with it unless the medications they have given me exacerbate the problem.

1. Leakage fluid from the ear is not related to essential tremors.
2. You heard a musical tone so loud it hurt you it is the tinnitus for this you consult the ENT specialist and go for Otoscopic examination , Pure tone Audiometry.
