Hi,thank you for posting your query on health care magic.

I have gone through your query and can understand your concern.

Looking at your symptoms,the cause might be due to Aneurysm(localised dilatation of a blood vessel) or a thyroid problem causing increased blood flow in the inner ear leading to sensation of heart beat sounds in the ear.

It would be advisable to first correct the fluctuating thyroid levels by consulting a physician.

If still you suffer from the same symptoms,then a MRI examination of head and neck is required.

Hope this answers your question.Take care.
