See an Oral surgeon: TMJ is a very common injury in car accidents. You need to be accurately diagnosed . An Oral surgeon who specializes in TMJ is recommended.

I can sometimes hear my pulse in my ear. Does this mean that I am having an aneurysm?

I can sometimes hear my pulse in my ear. Does this mean that I am having an aneurysm?

No: It is pretty common for people to hear a "pulse" in their ears. If anything it is more consistent with a blockage in the carotid arteries...Not an aneurysm. If it persists, it would be worth while getting a carotid ultrasound to evaluate the arteries. ...Read more

I can hear my pulse constantley in my right ear. Should i be worried?

Check BP: If your blood pressure is normal, it's probably ok. We have blood vessels in our head that are supposed to pulsate. Could be wax plugging your ear. If it goes away when you are busy doing things or feeling more relaxed, that would be a good sign. ...Read more

Relax!!: Yes, the excess fluid in your body can cause you to hear otherwise unnoticeable happenings in your body (ever wonder what the sound of food moving through your gut sounds like? You will). However you may also be hearing the clenching of your jaw muscles. I often explain these sounds as like a distant freeway. Ask your dentist if a hard night guard would help. Many other jaw problems come from this. ...Read more

If i lay my head against something i hear my pulse much clearer than before? Reasons for this? Also if i stand up i hear my blood flow in ears

Carotid artery: It is an anatomical fact that the carotid artery (the large artery in the neck that supplies blood to your brain) is adjacent to the cochlea (inner ear). Unfortunately, you are one of many people with this symptom. Try not to focus on it because it probably will not go away. You are 21 and it is unlikely that this symptom represents anything serious. But a sonogram of neck might be considered. ...Read more
