Hi Dear ,

As per your query you have ear pain and heartbeats sound in ear . The symptoms you mention in query like heartbeat sound is known as tinnitus . Well there can be many reasons wax build up , hearing loss , infection of ear , condition like meniere's disease , impacted tooth and temporomandibular joint problem . I would suggest you to consult ENT specialist for proper examination . Doctor may order Ct scan , blood test , and examination with otoscope . Doctor may prescribe stronger antibiotics , clean wax , prescribe supplement like ginkgo biloba and may refer you to oral surgeon if the problem is due to temporomandibular joint or impacted tooth .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
