You may have a mild case of patulous eustachian tube dysfunction. The eustachian tube connects the middle ear with the nasal passages. Usually the tube stays closed, keeping the air that you breath from blowing against the ear drum. Only once in a while it is supposed to open slightly equalizing air pressure between the middle ear and outside. If the eustachian tube stays open all the time, the air that you breath gets blown up against the ear drum, making it move back and forth. That is what may be causing the wind sound in your ear. If this symptom doesn't bother you, don't seek treatment. If it is annoying, there is a procedure that Dr. Dennis Poe of Boston (and other leading edge ENT specialists) do. The eustachian tube is injected with a special substance to narrow it. This results in the eustachian tube staying closed. I had the procedure done and it alleviated my patulous eustachian tube condition. Now my ear only feels slightly plugged. Overall, my ear feels much better than before.

Since last Thursday i have had a wind sound blowing in my left ear. I took antibiotics for two weeks for a root canal ( some complications ) and the day before I was to stop the sound started in my ear. It sounds like a wind storm. The doctor wants me to me have a MRI - he's looking for a tumor but I think I may have an inner ear issue that makes me feel light headed and off. When I lay down or sit it calms down - the walking is the problem.
