Does anyone know what might cause a rattling sensation in the
ear?  At certain frequencies and intensities of sounds (and
this varies from day to day) I feel a sensation of physical
rattling, just behind the ear drum.  I saw an audiologist
and he said he didn't know what was causing it, and otherwise
the ears were diagnosed as normal.  Any ideas?  It is particularly
set off by high pitched piano keys or vibrating things like
electric shavers.
