    I am hoping someone in this group has some experience with an unusual test. I need to provide my UCSF audiologist some instruction on how to run long-term ear impedance measurements with standard equipment. I wonder if something like acoustic reflex decay could be used but with a very low stimulus even if the acoustic reflex itself is not triggered by the low stimulus. My audiologist could not figure out a way to run this but I have read in papers that long-term impedance measurements can be done. The motivation is ear pain that was originally triggered by only sound is now being triggered by non acoustic stimuli. This test would investigate whether middle ear muscle contraction is correlated with the ear pain.

    Any help or guidance is welcome. Thank you
