Pulsatile sound in ear, turbulence in external carotid artery, MRA reports normal, neck swollen

Hi, I have been suffering from pulsatile sound in my left ear since Feb/11. Ultrasound indicates turbulant in my left external carotid artery , but the result of MRA of internal and external carotid artery was normal. I think right side of my neck is slightly swollen???? not sure. And when I gently press against back of my left ear the sound stops. I want to know what could be the cause of this sound?
