Just recently I have been experiencing a slight throbbing in my right ear only. It seems to come only slightly quite frequently. I have no other problems or symptoms with anything. I was simply wonding what may cause this. There is no pain, it's just extremely anoying. It seems to be in relation to my heart beat, so must be a vain or blood vessel or something causing it. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about it?
A number of things cause throbbing in relation to heart beat. It's important to get examined by a doctor since one of the reasons is potentially serious, an AVM arteriovenous malformation. It's probably nothing, but you should get checked.
