Thanks for posting your query.

Pounding in the ears or palpitation after exercising is normal due to increased cardiac output after exercise. If the pounding comes back to normal within 15 minutes of stopping the exercise, then there is nothing worrisome.

Since you have associated hypertension and diabetes, it is best to have a cardiac workout including ECG in all leads with a rhythm strip in lead 2, Thyroid function tests, and treadmill test to rule out any cardiac pathology.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
