Could throbbing sensation be normal in person with perforated eardrums?

Hello, I have two perforated eardrums. My ENT specialist will see me again in 2 months time to see if they are healing in their own. I am feeling throbbing pulsating in one ear which has stopped and is now occurring in the other ear. I don t know if this is normal behaviour for perforated eardrums or if this could be the start of infections? This happens on and off and I start to panic as I don t want it to be infections so have started taking antibiotic drops again as a precaution.

Appreciate this, if the medical perforated history of ear drum is there then this need to be taken into consideration for infection if this cause pain or throbbing sensation, better to see the ENT surgeon to rule out this, take care.
