Ear issue: I hear my blood pumping all the time.


I've had a stuffy left ear for a couple of weeks. My external hearing doesn't seem to be affected, but when things are fairly quiet, I can ear my blood flowing in the vein in my left ear. The "swoosh" sound if you will.

I'm wondering if I don't have some kind of inner ear infection or if I might have a pin-hole in my inner ear. Anyone have this or dealt with it?

I have this in my right ear, but mine is not associated with stuffiness. My ENT told me that is not uncommon. I hear mine the most when I am trying to sleep on that side. I hate it.

Can't say if yours is related to the stuffy ear situation you are having since my situation is different. But I hear it too!
