When I turn my head from side to side or in a downward manner I feel a vibration in my right ear. It's kind of like a pulse that repeats itself rapidly. I am unsure as to what this might be and would greatly appreciate some feedback? If you need any other

ENT evaluation: Although this may simply be your hearing your own carotid arteries which are located near the ear, it is concerning enough that you should probably see an ear/nose/throat physician so they can do a close examination, and possibly order some xrays/ scans to be sure there is nothing serious. They might also be reflected sounds from the upper neck bones rubbing against each other with head motion. ...Read more

I'm hearing my pulse in my right ear during my workout and when I get up to fast, and sometimes when I'm walking. What would cause this?

I'm hearing my pulse in my right ear during my workout and when I get up to fast, and sometimes when I'm walking. What would cause this?

Nothing wrong: This is probably due to some inefficiencies in your right eustachian tube, and when there is a little negative pressure in the middle ear, you'd be more likely to hear your internal carotid artery pulsate, which is located just below the middle ear. If your nose is also chronically stuffy - the cause of that may be causing the partial eustachian tube inefficiency. Either way - not to worry. ...Read more

Hi, for the last month I am hearing a feeling a squishy low rushing pulsing in my right ear, always there but can be louder and stronger at times?

Hi, for the last month I am hearing a feeling a squishy low rushing pulsing in my right ear, always there but can be louder and stronger at times?

Pusling rush in ears: Pulsing sounds and sensations in the ear are more than likely a result of turbulent blood flow through the blood vessels that surrond the inner ear. Increasing blood flow thru activities can make the sounds more prominent. An ear exam and hearing test can be a good first to start. Usually these sensations are a result of a benign condition. Hope this helps... ...Read more

I have been having this pressure / ache in my head right side above right ear feels like a bubble is about to pop been going on about a week not really painful at all sometimes it moves around my head?

See doctor for it: Most bubbles don't move or pop in the head. Since the pain keeps moving around, and so does the bubble, you need to have this examined by your doctor to see what it is, especially if it''s been going on for over a week. Most cysts don't move. ...Read more

Caution!: Our ears receive sound information 2 ways: through the air and through the bones of the skull. When air conduction is diminished, bone conduction becomes dominant. If you're listening to loud music through your earphones, you're temporarily injuring your air conduction, thus you hear your carotid artery pulse thru bone. The hearing impairment can become permanent. I urge you to reduce the volume! ...Read more

I am suffering from a rapid pulsing/thumping sound in my right ear. It began 4 weeks ago, initially just a couple of times at night, but now constant?

How rapid vs. Pulse: Rate? Though rare to be this, it could reflect major cardiovascular disease in your middle cerebral artery; one portion located just deep to the middle ear cavity, next to the cochlea. If the RATE & timing matches the pulse in you neck (carotid artery), it could reflect a complication of artery ds. & be a warning sign of an impending major stroke.

My right ear was syringed out 3 months ago and it has left me with a pulsating noise - it matches my pulse?

My right ear was syringed out 3 months ago and it has left me with a pulsating noise - it matches my pulse?

Hearing issue: We hear by 2 mechanisms: air conduction and bone conduction. When air conduction is impaired, we hear the internal sounds that are always there but usually muffled. Normal anatomy: your carotid artery traverses the bone that composes your inner ear -that's what you're hearing. Your ear drum is likely scarred or the bones that conduct are dysfunctional. An ENT doctor may be able to help. Good luck. ...Read more
