So I have had this whooshing heart beat sound in my ear for over a year now. It comes and goes where some times it crazy loud and other times it doesn't bother me. Well the past week has been a bad week and the noise is so loud then when i put on head phones i can still hear it. The only thing that helps is to tilt my head to the left side for some relief. Well that is all fine and dandy but it makes my neck really hurt. I saw my normal doctor about a year ago and she said it was built up water. I then went and saw an ENT who just basically looked in my ear and was like it look like tennutis or what ever and said learn to live with it. Well I am not happy at all with these findings!!! I am going back to my normal doctor to see if she can hear it on a stethoscope since I googled (yes im a googler) and found other people with the same problem have found out it was artery that was blocked. I'm 27 and overweight but I have never had any neural problems before. I just wanted to know if anyone else has had this issue and what ideas can I bring with me to my doctor appointment today.View Thread
