Hearing heartbeat in left ear when laying and changing position. Short periods of muffled hearing in same ear. Daily headaches in back of head.

Likely noncaddiac: Normal heart beats can frequently be heard by patients when they lie on their side or ear. It's a common complaint i hear in the office. We title it "cardiac awareness". Uncertain why it manifests itself to patients when it does. I suspect this is not a cardiac abnormality. Headaches obviously shouldn't be treated lightly. Common allergies on up to more important organic causes may be responsible. ...Read more

Eustachian tube: allows drainage of fluid from the middle ear, and equalizes air pressure on the ear drum. When the eustachian tube becomes blocked, usually from swelling due to allergies or from an infection, it can cause pain and sensitivity to sound, including your own pulse. Steroid nasal spray (eg. Nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase) can help reduce swelling in the eustachian tube and may relieve your symptoms. ...Read more

If it is present for days or longer, it is likely that you have some hearing loss. If you have tinnitus that does not stop, i would recommend a hearing test and an exam by an ent, especially if it is in just one ear or pulsates like your heart beat. ...Read more

I'm hearing a slight deep "whooshing" sound in my right ear, almost like fluid (my ear is dry), and it coincides with movement- especially when I jump?

I'm hearing a slight deep "whooshing" sound in my right ear, almost like fluid (my ear is dry), and it coincides with movement- especially when I jump?

Still may be fluid: If you swam or showered, a thin layer of liquid can adhere to the tympanic membrane or ear drum and cause this sensation. Or some fluid can ooze out of tissue and be behind (inside) the eardrum. The outside the ear drum liquid should go away on it's own. And often the inner liquid will also resolve. If pain occurs or the whoosh doesn't clear after a week, have a doctor examine your ear. ...Read more
