: For about two weeks I've had a problem with hearing my pulse in my right ear. The sensation and sound is very similar to having water in my ear after swimming, but this is different. It happens when I turn my head to the left, when I bend over, when I go up stairs...basically whenever I strain the slightest bit or when my pulse-rate goes up. The sound I hear is definitely related to my pulse, and is often a low 'whoosh whoosh' that falls in tempo with my heart-beat. I have never had any trouble with high blood pressure, but this symtom certainly points in that direction, as far as the research I've been able to do. I am going to a doctor in a few days, but I was wondering if anyone had similar symtoms or advice.
I had the symptoms you state. An ENT found a cyst in my ear. When it was removed the pulse sounds ceased.
