: I am 32 years old and 38 weeks pregnant. I recently recovered from an ear infection about 1 month ago. NOW, about 1 week ago, I ALL OF A SUDDEN began hearing a loud pulsating sound in my left ear. THEN, the sound moved into the right ear. Basically, I hear the pulsating sound in both ears now. Also, there is a small amount of dizziness associated with this.

: Is this a sign of inner ear problems? Do people usually have inner ear infections in BOTH ears? Has anyone EVER had the pulsating sound in the ears? If so, is this pregnancy related (as three doctors have said) or is this more serious? I'm hoping someone may have already dealt with this before.

: Concerned,

Hi Dottie,
I'm 34 and was interested in your post. At the end of June, I had a weird little repeated "thumping" sound (kinda like when your eyelid occasionally gets a little spasm in it, you know?) in my left ear. It cleared up, but then a week later I began to be very off-balance, kinda dizzy feeling. Dr. diagnosed "acute labrynthitis" last week but the meds haven't helped much so far. Does my "thumping" sound like what you had? If so, maybe it IS related to your ear infection... Also, my husband and I are trying to get pregnant...and I wondered: how did your doctor treat you for your ear infection considering your pregnancy?
