Pam Roberts from Maidstone has a rare condition with means she can hear her internal body noises - which she says are "unbearably loud".

The condition is called superior semi circular canal dehiscence. The arrow on Pam's CT scan points to a hole in her ear which is causing the problem. She underwent surgery last year to try to fix it - but it just made the problem worse.
