I checked into what ear crystals are made of, and it is Calcium Carbonate. I also checked the main ingredient of the antacid I frequently take for heartburn, and... it is Calcium Carbonate! My question is: can taking antacids (that have Calcium Carbonate) cause ear crystals to form and grow?
I remember from my MRI results, I had some “harmless calcification” in my brain, but they told me it isn’t anything to worry about, it is fairly normal. However, it does seem to lend further credibility to the idea (if it is happening in my brain, why not also my vestibular system).
Edit: To address the concerns in the comments and the answers, I am not seeking medical advice, just wondering if my possible connection of antacids to increased ear crystals is valid. If it is a valid hypothesis, I could follow up with my doctors to see if that is what is happening. This could also help the medical community if it turns out to be a new discovery. I have gone to many doctors and specialists, including two ENT's, and psychologists and no one has been able to properly diagnose me. I appreciate the answers, and will award the bounty to the one I feel is best near the end of the bounty period.
