Thumping in my ear and head

Posted , 4 users are following.


I have been experiencing thumping in my left ear like I can hear my heart beat perfectly clear. At times my whole head thumps. My ears feel blocked sometimes also. I'm 36 years old. I seen an ENT specialist and he said my hearing was good and he wasn't worried about the thumping. I worried. It's very annoying and freaks me out. Anyone else have this?? Any natural remedies to get rid of the thumping. I have an MRI scheduled for

December to ease my mind. Don't think I can wait any longer. Anyone have the same symptoms and knows a cure ?

    I've also heard my heart beat clearly and was told by a heart specialist this was normal and as long as your heart is beating that's good really so there's no need to worry! I've ongoing problems with earwax which I try to remove with olive oil drops but this doesn't always work so I have to be referred to a ENT specialist to have the wax removed which is inconvenient and a nuisance for me.
