I keep hearing my heartbeat in my ear what causes that?

I keep hearing my heartbeat in my ear what causes that?

High blood pressure: Normally one doesn't hear their own heartbeat. However sound travels in the direction of (blood) flow & the only way it gets amplified is if there is more. That happens frequently (but not most of the time) with high blood pressure, or hypertension (also known as the silent killer, but perhaps u r lucky it's not silent in your case). See a doctor, get your blood pressure checked during an episode. ...Read more

Pulsatile tinnitis: What you are probabaly experiencing is an increase in blood flow of the vessels around the ear that can occur during exercise or anemia. It can also occur when the vessels narrow or harden near the ear and the surrounding blood flow is turbulent. At your age, and because it occured afer exercise, the cause is likely benign. However, there are serious causes associated with this so see your doctor! ...Read more

I hear this ringing sound for like two seconds almost every month in my lifted ear only could it be my unborn child's heartbeat I'm hearing I need phe?

I hear this ringing sound for like two seconds almost every month in my lifted ear only could it be my unborn child's heartbeat I'm hearing I need phe?

Tinnitus: 2 seconds every month seems like a rare event to me. It's unlikely that ringing sound is fetal heartbeat. If worried, time rate of ringing sound. Fetal heart rate is 120-160 beats per minute or 2-3 beats per second. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/tinnitus/basics/definition/con-20021487 for more info. ...Read more

Hi. I'm 42.Bp 130/80 HR 85. I'm hearing a swooshing sound in my left ear in synch with my heartbeat and feel dizzy. Started yesterday. Concerning?

BP is OK: Your BP and pulse are in the normal range, so that is not worrisome. You might have labyrinthitis. Labyrinthitis is a condition that causes sudden dizziness and balance problems. People with this problem also feel sick and might throw up. Often, people feel very ill for a few days and then start to feel better. But sometimes, the symptoms last for weeks. Can be from a viral infection. ...Read more

I'm taking venlafaxine and trazodone and now I'm hearing my heartbeat in my ears along with static non stop for 3 days so far and still going. Ideas?

I'm taking venlafaxine and trazodone and now I'm hearing my heartbeat in my ears along with static non stop for 3 days so far and still going. Ideas?

Not sure: Is difficult state for certain what is causing your experience. If you've only recently started on these medications, it is possible that you are experiencing some tinnitus as a side effect, most likely to the venlafaxine. Rarely Effexor can raise your blood pressure, I think this unlikely, but it wouldn't hurt to have it checked. It what encourage you to call the prescribing physician. ...Read more

37 female. Hearing heartbeat in ear. Seems to stop when I clench my jaw. Also have pain in tendons running from elbow to wrist, not sure associated?

37 female. Hearing heartbeat in ear. Seems to stop when I clench my jaw. Also have pain in tendons running from elbow to wrist, not sure associated?

Unrelated: These symptoms are unrelated. It is not uncommon to feel or hear the pulse in the ear, but if it is a very noticeable feeling, it's prudent to have your blood pressure checked to make sure it's not elevated. Your arm symptom is nonspecific but could be due to an inflamed tendon in the elbow. If you can take them, nsaids like Advil or Aleve (naproxen) may help. Otherwise see your physician for evaluation. ...Read more

I've had tinnitus for 7 years, now suddenly pounding like my own heartbeat in my right ear, can't something be done about this? I take lipoflavanoid to help, but it just aids a little. I have state-of-the-art hearing aids, but they do not help

What: What you are describing sounds like pulsatile tinnitis. Before recommending treatment, it would be reasonable to reconnect with your ENT to explore possible causes that include certain vascular tumors of the head and neck (i.e., paragangliomas), atherosclerosis that may be creating narrowing and turbulent flow of your carotid artery (which runs close to your middle ear), possible avm (arteriovenous malformation), etc. After a thorough head and neck exam, and audiogram, he/she may wish to get a contrast ct or mri/mra study. Just curious, with you being on lipoflavanoids, have you been diagnosed with meniere's disease? ...Read more

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

Lately, I've been hearing my heartbeat in my right ear. When this happens, I can sort of feel it in my ear as if the blood vessel is pumping and pushing against something. Help.

Audible heartbeat: I have heard patients complain about an audible heartbeat most commonly when they are anemic. It can also commonly occur with high blood pressure. Under rare circumstances it can be due to a vascular tumor near the ear drum. Please see a doctor and ask them to check your blood pressure, complete blood count, and auditory canal. If these are normal, further investigation will be needed. ...Read more

What could cause me to hear my heart beat in one of my ears every couple of days? Rarely eyes get watery when hearing heart beat.

Ears: We hear by 2 mechanisms: external sounds via air conduction and internal sounds by bone conduction. Normal anatomy: your carotid artery passes through the bone that makes up your inner ear. Bottom line: you likely have serous otitis media or an intermittently congested eustachian tube. When your external hearing is diminished, you hear the softer internal blood flow. This is not dangerous. ...Read more
