Question: I am a 66 yr. old male. For the past few months, I have been having episodes of rapid internal pulsating tremors which are becoming more frequent and more intense. The last 3 days, I am feeling it in my right ear. I do not appear to have any other symptoms. I take l.75mg Synthroid daily due to thyroidectomy a few years ago. I have recently seen my endocronologist and have had current blood work with no significant changes.

Brief Answer: Heart rhythm changes Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Internal tremors that you are talking about could be due to two reasons 1. Irregular heart rate. 2. Anxiety disorder. Any change in the heart rate or rhythm can lead to such Internal tremors. Our body is used to a typical rhythm of heart and any change is not acceptable. You should get a ECG which will show the hear rhythm. These chages can be experinced any where in the body including your head or tympanic membrane. The second possibility is anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder can be due to stressor or can be without stressor as well. They may require some medications like propranolol or clonasepam for relief. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
