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

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

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

Loud indistinguishable screaming voices in my head accompanied with strange feelings in my head and body. What are the possibilities of a brain tumor?

Low but not zero: Sounds as if you are having auditory hallucinations and while i couldn't definitively rule out a brain tumor simply based on what you've said, my opinion is that it's not as likely as other diagnostic possibilities.

Your family doctor should be able to flush your ears out if needed and that should take care of the problem.
