I've noticed it consistently. Almost like an overactivation, movement in ears, sometimes ringing.

It's dark chocolate, coconut sugar, no additives.

The ringing is tinnitus. I know Peat has said tinnitus can/may be caused by intestinal irritation. I wouldn't be surprised if an allergy could cause it as well. Chocolate seems to be a problematic food for quite a few people. How soon after consuming it do you get symptoms?

Ok, it's within 5 minutes of consuming. I feel like I can get that ear thing after consuming lots of espresso too. With the ear stuff comes a feeling of heart unsteadiness too..like a really mild anxiety.

Caffeine maybe? 5 minutes is awfully fast though, and chocolate is relatively low in caffeine. I used to get similar symptoms from coffee when I started consuming it a few years ago. It was months before I could have more than a cup without getting anxiety and a racing heart.

Dark chocolate is not typically prepared with alkalai i.e. dutch processed. It will usually have higher iron content as well as being more estrogenic.
Personally having had a crohns history in the past, dark chocolate would always give me problems. Not good quality milk chocolate.
