Unhappy Hear Heartbeat in Ear

For the past 4 weeks I have occasionally been hearing my heartbeat in my left ear with a whooshy sound. Family practice Dr said fluid in ear and gave me a Z-pak which cleared up the sinus headache and lightheadness - but I still hear heartbeat when I turn head or bend over - stops when i change positions or move head different direction. Funny thing is that I don't notice it in morning - usually starts in the afternoon. Went to ENT who said ears are clear now - no fluid - everything looks good. Had Cartroid artery ultrasound a few months ago and everything fine - MRI 2 years ago for sinus problems and that was fine. ENT says ignore it and if it gets worse we can always do a CAT scan with an angiogram.

THIS IS DRIVING ME NUTS! Any advice or info? Thanks!

Re: Hear Heartbeat in Ear

Thanks for answering, Jankyle. There are so many people I'm reading about on these Boards that hear this 24 hours a day so I guess I shouldn't complain. It's so weird that I don't notice it the first part of the day and I start hearing it occasionally in the afternoon. I have a desk job so it's not like I'm out exercising or anything. I notice it some when I first go to bed, but I change positions and it seems to be gone the rest of the night. Do you have yours during the day, too?
