Most likely: If you hear your heart beat in your ear, called tinnitus, it is often benign however there are rare disorders that you should discuss with your doctor to determine in a specialist check-up (ENT) is in order. This is particularly reasonable for you as you noted sinus surgery, migraine headaches and nasal congestion.
