Hearing Disorders Board Index


Hearing your heart beat in your ears is called [B]pulsatile tinnitus [/B] and can be very serious. That's why your doctor is having the Mri performed. Abnormalities in the arteries carrying blood to the brain, in the vicinity of the ear, can cause this.
I have had this for 5 years. I have had MRI's, MRA's, hearing tests, CT scans, X-rays, and an angiogram. All were normal. Now that I'm pregnant, it is worse. I know it can be frustrating. The best thing to do is try to forget about it and get your mind on something else. I would recommend having some testing done though.
I have been having a heartbeat and swooshing sound in my right ear for 6 months. It aways feels full. I have been to two ent doctors and an allergist. I also had a MRI. It was clear of infections or tumors. It is very uncomfortable. My ent wants to do minor surgery in the ear. He feels there is a extra piece of skin that is covering the eardrum and that is why it won't open. The pressure in the left ear is ok, but the right one is showing nothing. He took a hearing test and said it is ok. I'm nervous about having it done as he has to go near or into the eardrum. It may create other problems or bring on vertigo which I am prone to. Has anyone out there ever had such an operation and what were the results.
Yes! I am experiencing a continuous thud in my right ear. It's begun to last a couple of seconds or so. It just gos really fast thuds's. Nothing helps it to go away. My doctor has placed me on zyrtec d, with steroids. Both large and small doses. But nothing helps. At some point during the morning it doesnt seem to bother me. Soon after though it starts slowly and by late afternoon it does it continuously like a wood pecker is tapping away in my ear. it is like there is pressure inside that needs to be released. I've tried holding my nose and blowing so the pressure would give in my ears. Hoping that it would pop. Nothing happened. I've placed the palm of my hand on my ear to suction air out. No response. I've had hearing tests done and the results were perfect. I've been told by my ENT that there isn't any fluid in my ears. Cotton in my ear would make it sound louder. Have you had any good results? Please share any information you can. Right now I'm really considering going to the emergency room. I'm very desperate.

Yes, I have this too. I had an MRI and they found an unrelated brain anuerysm behind my left eye. Once I took care of that, I went back to doctors trying to find out what the hearing problem was. If it had just been the whooshing sound/heart beat problem I probably would have given up, but I also get vertigo spells and my hearing loss started to impact both ears. They finally diagnosed me with Meniere's. The symptoms eased up greatly before I found a doctor that specializes in Meniere's. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot they can do about it. I've been vertigo free for about six months now, but I suspect it could come back as quickly as it went away.

Get the MRI just to be sure.

Best of luck,

I'm glad I found this thread. I'm 18 weeks pregnant and about 2 weeks ago I started hearing my heart beating in my left ear. Mostly only when I am active and my heart is beating faster. Its driving me nuts! My boyfriend said it could be earwax, so I got stuff at the drugstore to flush out an earwax buildup, but that can't be what it is because I still hear it! Then I was thinking maybe it was an ear infection but my ear doesn't hurt. Then after reading this thread I see it is something else. Should I see my doctor about this or will it ever go away???
I've been hearing my heartbeat in my ears (mostly in my left ear) on and off since April. It's gradually gets louder as the day goes on. My ENT, too, wanted me to have an MRI or CT. But I keep thinking it has something to do with my neck or muscle spasms. Thanks for the idea of muscle spasm in the middle ear. I'll check it out. - sh
I have this problem for about 5 years now. I don't think it ever will go away. I clearly can hear my pulse in my ear 24/7. I don't know if it gets louder somtetimes or if I'm just more aware of it sometimes. It is the sound of my pulse, for sure. When I get up from a chair my pulse speeds up a little and I can hear that in my ear. After all these years I'm very use to it, it's just like a "beating clock" in the room. I thought maybe age has something to do with it, I'm in my seventies, but I see on this board that very young people seem to have the problem.

My doctor told me once to take a certain pill...forgot the name....I took it for a few months but nothing changed, so I stopped the pill.
About two years ago I went to see an ear doctor, he sent me for a test, I thought it was a test to find out what's wrong, it turned out he sent me for a hearing test!!!! Nothing wrong with my hearing. He more or less told me I just have to live with it, didn't seem to know what's causing it. :rolleyes:
