I Hear A Noise In Ear When Ear On Pillow What Causes This
Today, laying down on right side with head on the pillow. I hear a ticking/popping noise inside ear/head. It stops and few min later comes back.
Anxious!: Your ears can hear all sorts of sounds when they are compressed. So try to shift the angle at which you are laying down and I expect the sounds will go away. Sometimes it is the beat of your heart which can be causing these popping sounds. Try to ignore, relax as it is nothing serious. Hope you caan sleep better now. ...Read more

No, physiology: Our hearing works by 2 mechanisms: air conduction (transmitted from external sounds) and bone conduction (transmitted from internal sounds). Normal anatomy: your carotid artery traverses the bone that makes up your inner ear. When you occlude your external auditory canal by lying down, you "turn off" air conduction allowing you to hear the always present but much softer bone conduction. ...Read more

Tinnitus: The combination of recent tinnitus and hearing loss in one ear, with or without vertigo symptoms, calls for an evaluation by a neurologist or otolaryngologist as one cause is a brain tumor called acoustic neuroma.

Why do I hear my heartbeat when I lie on the pillow with my ears folded (covering ear canal)? Is this because of the temporal arteries/veins near ear?
Sort of: When you lie on your side you may feel the artery pulsations in and around the ear structures but hearing the sound is not so common but it's possible that what you're hearing is the artery touching ear tissue with each beat. If These sensations are very marked, have your blood pressure checked but, more than likely, there's nothing to worry about. ...Read more

When I lay down on my pillow at night, I can hear and feel my pulse on my head. Like a vein is pulsuating. My BP is normal and so is heart rate?
Superficial Artery: The superficial temporal artery is a prominent artery just in front of the ear. In certain positions like 'laying down with your head on the pillow", the artery is slightly compressed by the weight of your head against the hard bone of the skull. This allows transmission of sound with each and every pulse of blood that is forced through the compressed artery. If BP/HR are normal, this is normal. ...Read more
High blood flow?: The carotid artery and jugular vein run in close proximity to your inner ear. If you have a conductive hearing loss, the internal sounds can be amplified. If you have high flow due to condition that increase your blood volume or from more vigorous activity of your heart, the turbulence created can also make these sounds more conspicuous. ...Read more
