Pulsing Ears

Feb 13, 2015 10:42 PM

Does anyone have whooshing pulsing in your ears to the beat of your heart/pulse? It's keeping me awake and is obnoxious. I don't know if it's anything to worry about.

Yep, have that as well. For me, it's just annoying And like you said obnoxious but haven't had any problems caused by it. Hope that helps.

I have had that on occasion. No hindrance to my health from it.

I've noticed it too. They just diagnosed me with 1)a low-normal ejection fraction (50-54%) of the left ventricle ( norm is 55% and up; my dads is 71%; 49% and below is congestive heart failure)...& 2) mitral valve regurgitation, &3) angina. I don't know if that's why I hear my pulse or not, but I plan to ask at my follow up.

Do you have a high resting pulse rate? I had heart trouble during my last pregnancy and was diagnosed with (I cannot think of the right medical terms) skipping beats and high pulse and palpitations. They improved significantly after birth enough that I haven't been back to a cardiologist since.

Yes I do. My blood pressures gone up & so has my heart rate, both higher than normal for me. Previous to EKG changes was appx 112/78 bp w/ hr of 78 to 121/82 w/ 82 hr... Now closer to 127/78 to 132/87 bp w/ 89-99 hr

My BP runs about 125/78 but my resting pulse is typically between 95 and 105 bpm. And I'm fairly active. It's been that way for years.

My bp & hr just changed in the last 3-6 months. My ekgs have always been normal up through August 2014, but this month it wasn't.

My EKG's have been normal, my BP is usually 120/72 (except when I go to pain management, it goes up). My resting pulse is usually between 58-60 bpm. Sometimes I do get swooshing sounds in my ears and it's usually when I'm on stress overload.
