What causes hearing of heart pulsations in ear?
Related to upper respiratory tract infection
Welcome to HCM and thank you for the query.
I understand your concern.
There is nothing to be scared, this may not be a big problem.
You hear the pulsations ( like your heart beat) in the ear when the Eustachian tube ( the tube connecting the back of your nose to the middle ear) is blocked. This occurs when there is an infection in your upper respiratory tract - the nasopharynx and/or the maxillary sinus.
If you can afford it, you should see an ENT specialist. If not, you require to take a nasal decongestant as drops and tablets and take steam inhalations to clear the nasal passages. If the nasal discharge is yellow or you have fever and facial pain or headache, you would require an antibiotic.
Your current symptoms are not related to your injury in XXXXXXX unless you had injury to your face also.
