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

Hello doctor, I have(soft) ache in left-right parties(near ears, at the top of the ears) of head, Voice come from head, voice mainly comes at night

What you seem to be: describing is sounds coming, not from the outside environment, but from inside your head. This is known as "bone conduction" of sound. The most common causes of earache & loss of external hearing are middle & external ear infections and wax build up in the ear canal. But this is an educated guess. You need to see a doctor to find out for sure. Best wishes. Dr. Anne ...Read more
