See your doctor. ...: Right away. You may also need to see the doctor who did the aneurysm coiling. This sound may relate to the procedure, or be caused by something else, but you need to know what is causing it and what, if anything to do about it.

Something to consider is carotid bulb dehiscence and or a high jugular bulb. Make sure your old ct and MRI scans of the head are reviewed. ...Read more

I'm hearing my pulse in my right ear during my workout and when I get up to fast, and sometimes when I'm walking. What would cause this?

Nothing wrong: This is probably due to some inefficiencies in your right eustachian tube, and when there is a little negative pressure in the middle ear, you'd be more likely to hear your internal carotid artery pulsate, which is located just below the middle ear. If your nose is also chronically stuffy - the cause of that may be causing the partial eustachian tube inefficiency. Either way - not to worry. ...Read more

Immediately after an orgasm and only when I'm on my back, I hear and feel my pulse in my left ear, it goes away as fast as it arrived. Is that normal?

Immediately after an orgasm and only when I'm on my back, I hear and feel my pulse in my left ear, it goes away as fast as it arrived. Is that normal?

Not to worry: You likely have some congestion in your eustacian tube (the potential space that connects your pharynx with your middle ear that "pops" when you go up a mountain or in an airplane.) during orgasm, your BP and heart rate physiologically are increased which is normal and you can hear your pulse in your ear because you have reduced conductive hearing. The tympanic membrane or bones may contribute. ...Read more

Why when I first wake up can I hear & feeling pulse in my ears?

Why when I first wake up can I hear & feeling pulse in my ears?

Normal: The carotid artery is anatomically located adjacent to the cochlea or inner ear organ. You are aware of this pulsation. Unfortunately, it is most commonly a normal physiological phenomenon. However, rarely, at age 37, it can represent an abnormality. The bottom line is that you are aware of an arterial pulsation of the large artery of the neck. If you are otherwise asymptomatic, don't worry. ...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

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

I can hear this pulse/whooshing sound in my left ear mostly at night. Sometimes happens through the day. Should I be worried? What can I do to stop it?

It means blood is: Circulating into your head (brains). You want to hear it as long as you're alive! You need to not tunE into it as much, just like hearing your heart beat! If you didn't hear it, then you should really be worried! Don't get anxious over it. When it's quiet at night, it's more audible. It's a good thing! Use white noise of waves or nature sounds to distract you if irritates or worried by it. ...Read more

Hi, for the last month I am hearing a feeling a squishy low rushing pulsing in my right ear, always there but can be louder and stronger at times?

Hi, for the last month I am hearing a feeling a squishy low rushing pulsing in my right ear, always there but can be louder and stronger at times?

Pusling rush in ears: Pulsing sounds and sensations in the ear are more than likely a result of turbulent blood flow through the blood vessels that surrond the inner ear. Increasing blood flow thru activities can make the sounds more prominent. An ear exam and hearing test can be a good first to start. Usually these sensations are a result of a benign condition. Hope this helps... ...Read more

Why I can feel my pulse in my body, in my neck, I also can hear him in my ear? I can t stand this anymore: (please give me an answer

Pulse in the ear: If you feel your pulse while you are comfortably sitting, you may have high blood pressure. At your age it is hard to diagnose because most people at your age do not see doctors. Get your blood pressure checked at your doctor's office ASAP. You need to get your electrolytes and iron levels checked. Avoid high salt foods until you get in to see the doctor. Good luck and feel better! ...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

You need: To have that ear examined. ..sounds like impacted CERUMEN (Ear Wax)
There are OTC cleanser systems but its a lot easier to have your Primary Care Provider irrigate the wax out. (If his/her Office does not do this any good Walk In Unit will most likely have the equipment!)
BTW DO NOT INSERT ANY OBJECT YOURSELF!
Hope this helps

What causes a hard felt heart beat? In my chest and chin? And also when I bend my head down I can hear my pulse in my head/ears?

Premature Beats: Phenomena occurs when U have occas premature beat, followed by normal beat. Early beat with less filled Ventricle, & following beat with greater than NL filled Ventricle. So second beat releases more blood & this is experienced as harder beat. If this happens freq. Would request Holter Monitor from Prim MD, which records all beats 24-72 hrs. Prob not a signif problem, just be sure. ...Read more

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.
Hearing your pulse in your ear is not necessarily related and often times will go away on its own.
I recently experienced that for a few months and it went away.
