Why Was I Hearing My Heartbeat In My Ear When I Was Lying Down
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

If these are normal, further investigation will be needed. ...Read more
Is it normal to hear your heartbeat while lying face down on the bed? I hear a slight whoosh or air sounds in my ear when I bend over.

The carotid artery, the large artery in the neck that supplies blood to the brain is very close to the cochlea, the hearing portion of the inner ear. The inner ear senses these pulsations. I am surprised that more people are not aware of this. Called pulsatile tinnitus. ...Read more
