I am in the same boat as 0hs0luckyyx3... except it HAS taken over my life! But it is such an obsession for me that it's constantly on my mind for everything I do as well!!! And I'm like abeautifulmind as well because my ears get like that too... it's weird it seems like it happens more with stress. But I have been looking into natural remedies also... I am now taking Calcium and Magnesium with Zinc (vitamin d is included also in the pills) because this "formula" is supposed to help relax you...I have been feeling overall better since being on them, but I still have anxiety.
