What causes pulsing in the ears?

I have a whooshing pulse sound in both ears, primarily the left. It corresponds to my heart beat and is extremely annoying, especially at night even though I have a sound generator near my head.Is there something I can do to alleviate this problem?

Hi welcome to the health care magic

Here any organic cause if present should be ruled out....

Your Otoscopy ear examination needed for that....

Sometime glomus tumour like condition can lead pulsating ear feeling...

So consult otorhinolaryngologist for ear examination by Otoscopy

Take care

According to cause further specific treatment can be guided

Your blood pressure also should be measured

Hope this will help you
