Why does ear keep beating?
I had all 4 wisdom tooth removed 4 weeks. The bottow two were in the gums so it was difficult to get them out. After the surgery, i had dry socket and couple of weeks later the pain subisded in the jaw and the socket is almost healed up according to the dentist. However, a week ago i have been getting pain in my ear. It seems as if the ear is beating similar to heart beats. This happens especially when i go to bed or if i have support on my head like when im laying down on my couch. i went to ent and tmj specialist and they both told me nothing is wrong and my dentist told me there is no nerve damage and he took panoramic x-rays which shows everything is fine.
Right now, I am very worried because i dont know what is causing the ear beating when i go to bed. I am thinking it might be because of the wisdom tooth extraction however, i am new to medical world and dont know this for sure. can anyone tell me based on what i mentioned what could be causing the ear beating? Do i need to be concerned about this and see someone or should i just wait and see if it heals up from the surgery? I am very confused and anxious about this so any help would be very appreciated.
