pulsating in ears while wearing ear plugs

For the past year, I've worn ear plugs at night to help me sleep. About a month ago, I started getting a pulsating sensation in my right ear whenever I inserted them--kind of like a heartbeat. It's making it hard for me to fall asleep (and I can't sleep without them, too much noise in the area where I live), and I have NO idea what's even causing it. I never had a problem with ear plugs until this started happening early this month, and I've been using the same brand now for about 6 months so it's not due to changing brands or anything.

Any ideas why this would be happening? It's only in my right ear, but it's aggravating and I'm tired of losing sleep because of it.
