Pulsing in right ear off and on. It's not like a heartbeat, its more of a pulsating sound. I have a cold and some sinus pressure in my head.?

Pulsations in ear: If the pulsating sensation in the ear is recent and related to the sinus pressure in your head and cold symptoms, it is to be expected. A cold commonly is associated with dysfunction of the eustachian tube connecting the nose and ear.
