Hello, and thank you for sharing with the community.

I'd love to offer you some help with this problem you are experiencing, but in order to give you accurate advice I'll have to know a bit more about your situation.  

How long have you been getting this symptom?  Have you been in any situations lately where you could have gotten water in your ears, or an injury of some kind to your ear.  Does it seem to happen in any kind of pattern or is it random?

Tinnitus could be a possibility as well.  There are 2 kinds of Tinnitus.  The first is called pulsatile and the other is nonpulsatile. Hypothetically speaking, you would have nonpulsatile.

Nonpulsatile tinnitus can be caused by any number of things including:

  • earwax buildup
  • large amounts of medications
  • drinking alcohol or coffee excessively
  • ear infections or eardrum rupture
  • whiplash or direct blow to the head
  • rapid change in environment pressure
  • blood flow problems
  • nerve damage


Try to analyze your situation a bit more and see how this information matches.  Let us know if you have any more questions.
