A member asked:

Is it normal to be able to feel a pulsing vein behind your left ear and not the right one? if not, why would this be?

Anatomy variation: Most people are symmetrical or have the same features on each side of the body. But everyone has slight variations in anatomy that would explain why you only feel your pulse on one side. I wouldn't be concerned.
