I have been experiencing a feeling in my ears/ head

Resolved Question:

For sometime I have been experiencing a feeling in my ears/ head constantly, it's a sort of muzzy whooshing feeling (very uncomfortable) worse when everything is quiet or when I lay down to sleep, it's not that apparent when I'm busy with work or interacting with other people. It's worse when I'm a bit stressed or excited. Sometimes It feels in time with my pulse. My doctor has done preliminary checks and said he doesn't think it's anything to worry about. I said I would like to get checked out. I have seen a cardiologist, he said I have an irregular heart beat which could be the cause. I'm having further tests. I just wondered if you could shed any light on the matter. Thanks Keith

Hi

It is called tinnitus, which can have many causes.

It is mandatory that you see an ear nose and throat doctor to get your hearing checked.

The most common cause of this is damage to the hearing.

Without fail, that doctor must be consulted.

Other causes are inner ear problems, other ear problems, tumor of the haring nerve, blood vessel problems, TMJ, cervical spine disease, anxiety, meniere's disease, and so on.

ENT is next.
