I have very little hearing in my left ear and it feel like it is twitching or seisuring most of the day could this be assossiated with a tbi injury?

Possibly: There are many causes of decreased hearing. Tbi is one of the potential causes. A patient can have some injury to the temporal bone which houses the hearing mechanism. This can lead to the decreased hearing. The more severe the tbi, the more likely that there may be an associated hearing problem. ...Read more

Hemifacial spasm: The twitching you describe may be hemifacial spasm. This usually affects one side. Often the twitching starts in the eye and spreads to the mouth. An MRI of the brain will ensure that there is not a structural reason for the twitching. See a neurologist or neurosurgeon to make the diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. ...Read more

Twitching: The symptoms you have are very diffuse and do not correspond to any discrete neurological condition such as a stroke. Diffuse neurological symptoms can be seen with certain metabolic conditions such as kidney failure, infections, or liver disease. I doubt you have any of these and I suspect these symptoms could be due to anxiety. See your doctor for a complete work up. ...Read more

Check your pulse: If coincident with each beat of your pulse and you have no other symptoms and your blood pressure is controlled then nothing to worry about. Carotid artery can create bone conduction sound picked up by your ear. Occasionally an indicator of excessively high blood pressure of a cardiac arrythmia. If you suspect either then follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

Various..: It could be related to different possibilities but without any more information or exam it is very difficult to make a guess this way.

My suggestion is t make an appointment with your doctor for formal exam. ...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

Loud pulse sound next left ear also sharp pain felt under chin near neck,righ side. ?

Ear noise+chin pain: NajlaM~ the loud noise in the ear is most likely benign audible carotid pulsation because even mild calcification in the carotid will cause this.

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

Anatomy variation: Most people are symmetrical or have the same features on each side of the body. But everyone has slight variations in anatomy that would explain why you only feel your pulse on one side. I wouldn't be concerned. ...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

Pulse in ear: many reasons for this. called pustule tinnitus. Have someone look in ear to make certain not wax. Can get a otoscope at CVS & have someone look. There is an artery close to the ear and one can hear this sometimes. Or your carotid artery can be rusted almost shut & blood squirt thru each beat. It whishes with each heart beat. Dr/u can hear this with stethoscope-but unlikely at your age. ...Read more
