Re: Swooshing Sound just started in my Right Ear
Well, if this sound coincides with your heart beat, I would definitely see a doctor. I had a friend with this symptom, and his condition was very serious.
I'm going to describe this badly but the idea is that his veins which are supposed to carry blood back to the heart from the brain had somehow grown together with his arteries. Arteries carry blood from the heart to the brain & the rest of the body and are under much higher pressure than veins. The veins can't stand up to the higher blood pressure forever and the usual result is a stroke. My doctor told me it was unusual to diagnose this condition in a living person; more commonly it is found during an autopsy.
My friend had surgery, which corrected the problem, but it was very touch and go for him.
