For the last five years, I have been hearing heartbeats in my left ear. Seems to more so when I am lying down on my left side, usually in the nite and during sleep. Often it gets so loud and wake me up. The heart beat is normal. I had been sent for brain scan, MRI and all came back negative. My ear doctor suspected dural avms 3 years ago. So I had a 5-vessel angiogram done and did not find any brain tumor. Till today, I still hear the heart beating in my left ear. Sometimes, I just sit down, relaxed, and suddenly, I feel the heart beat jumped strongly in my throat - feeling a rapid lump gone through the throat. I live a normal, pretty happy life with my small family and carefu with our diet due to high cholesterol which is below 100 with statin.
Please explain to me why I am hearing my heart beating in my left ear. Thanks.
I hear my pulse in my left ear to, but only when Iying down on my left side. I assume its becaused of backedup ear wax and I am hearing whats going on behind the blockage, or the wax is working as a condcutor, magnifying the sound. I know the ear canal is rich in blood vessels so I would assume it would be possible to have a pulsation sound there.
Same here!! I have had it for years, as long as I can remember, I mentioned it to my doc years ago and he said it was nothing to worry about, I do get sinusitis so whether its to do with that or not I really dont know. I have at whether or not I have sinusitis. I just move my head to a position where I cant hear it.
