Third Window Syndromes
This group of conditions is a relatively new discovery in vestibular sciences and generates some exotic symptoms that include hearing your own footsteps; hearing your eyes move; distorted hearing of your own voice and feeling dizzy with loud sounds or coughing or sneezing. The condition is due an abnormal connection between the inner and the middle ear. It can mimic any audiovestibular condition and accurate diagnosis based on criteria for suspicion is vital for treatment. Surgery is an option as is rehabilitation.
