Ear throb/pulse
normal1mom posted:
For the past 7-10 days my ear has been bothering me. It's not hurting me but more annoying! It's like I can hear my ear pulse or throb. What could be causing this?

You need to see a ENT doctor, it could be something serious like a mass. I had this problem, noticed I could put pressure on my carotid artery and the noise would stop. The Dr. had to make a tiny hole into my eardrum to relieve the pressure.
