I have been feeling my heartbeat in my ears

Hey, I am a 28 yo woman and recently have been feeling/hearing my heartbeat in my ears. I also occasionally feel a fluttering sensation in my chest. My doctor has prescribed propranolol but this is used for cardiac arrhythmias. Has anyone got any idea what s going on? Cheers.

It could be a warning that something's wrong. If you were old I would say right away that you're in for an impending heart attack, but my God you're only 28! Consult your doctor more regularly.

Last night I went to bed, and within a few minutes I felt an almost flush feeling in my ear. I got up to look in the mirror and had blood running down the side of my face coming from my ear. I tried to clean it and soaked up approx. 10-15 q tips, before it seemed to be clean. Went back to bed within 5 minutes it happened again, mire blood running from ear. If I put a q tip in my ear now there is still some bood but not as much as before. I haven t had any injury, haven t been exposed to loud noise, no flights, scuba, swimming or other pressure or temp changes. Was not picking or cleaning it, and only used q tips after it started bleeding.Also no pain, although now does feel a bit like I have been swimming and got water in my ear but I haven t. Any idea what might be causing this? Thank you in advance for an help -Maggie

For the past couple of months, I have been experiencing a whooshing (like an ultrasound of baby s heartbeat) in my ears (both) off and on, most often when lay down, and lately when I stand up. I also have a full feeling in my right ear (somewhat in my left, but prominently in my right) and the right ear sometimes hurts. I have seen an ENT and my hearing is fine. He checked my ears and said the right canal was small. He ordered an MRI and the nurse called and said that the blood vessel was close to right ear and that could explain the sound in the right ear -- when I told her it was both ears, she said she would have to leave him a note. I have not heard back. I am concerned because it has been going on for a while, getting progressively worse.

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

I had a herpetic whitlow - sp? which caused lymphangitis, or red streaking up my hand and arm - about the same time, my heart started beating irregularly and I went on a 7 day course of Keflex. While on the Keflex, my heart was fine. The minute I went off the Keflex, the palpitations came back. I ve worn a heart monitor and was told that 2% of my heartbeats are extra but what I feel is that there is some sort of infection at play here even though my bloodwork has come back normal. Thoughts?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer

My husband is 80 years old and has been diagnosed with congenial heart dease. His heart is only pumping half the speed of a normal heart beat. And now his lungs are filling with fluid. He also has Alzheimer's.
