Hi, have just loined group and hope I can help (group was "Rapid thumping in right ear" https://patient.info/forums/discuss/rapid-thumping-sound-in-right-ear-258497
I have read all the posts and find this really interesting as this has just started for me. I have Bsc (psych) and my dad was an ENT ( Imiss him).
This right ear thumping has recently started for me and I have tried the following
1. Washing ear
2. Continued popping of ears
3. Using oil to maybe desolve wax (note.. used what I had which probably wasn't the best! Cooking... olive should be fine but both should achieve the result required)
All of no real result.
Having read all of the posts (and with a good psych degree) I have noticed that stress and anxiety seem to pop up more often than other issues such as tinitus. To have a thumping like this in the ear (especially the right ear for some strange reason) seems somewhat odd to say the least. Note: I have yet to try magnessium..
What you should know is that I am at the moment experiencing a very stressful time and under treatment. This is when it started. I have, at this time of writting taken a couple of extra anxiety tabs (still within tolerance, don't worry) and awaiting resuls. I also drink a few wines but this is not a precuser. I think .... maybe ... could be anxiety, depression.. or just a complete coincidence. However, the posts have suggested that depression / anxiety may play a part. I will certainly be seeing doctor to examine my ear (to rule out a physicological problem) and also try the magnesiam. For me it appears too coincidental that this is a difficult part of my life. Once again I am so sorry my dad is gone and the conversations we could have had about this!! Perhaps it would never have started in the first place. My advice for others is this
Stick your finger in the ear canal (someone else said this and it does work for me)
Try the magnesium treatment
See GP for a quick look into ear
If streess / anxiety a problem, get that sorted (that is easy to say I know) but try.
This is starting to drive me mad and I WILL find the answer for me and share. pardon any bad spelling
