Pulsing in my right ear
Why do i hear pulsing in my right ear
A pulsing sensation in the ear can be due to multiple reasons ranging from fluid in your middle ear (commonly after a head cold) to a benign vascular (blood vessel) lesion in the ear to unusual blood vessels running near the hearing nerve. As a result, any persisting pulsatile tinnitus ought to be evaluated by your ENT physician so that a thorough exam, hearing test and other possible diagnostic tests can be obtained.
