Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

The pounding in the ear can be due to tinnitus.

There are many causes for tinnitus , but some times no cause can be evident also. The causes may be -ear infection, exposure to loud sound, ear wax, stiffening of bones of the ear.

There may be vascular causes like blood vessel malformation, or abnormal flow of blood may lead to this feeling.

Sometimes anxiety may also aggravate it.

You should take OTC nasal decongestant like Otrivin.

It is advised to undergo an ear examination by an ENT specialist for further evaluation to rule out eustachian tube blockage which result in tinnitus.

You may try masking devices (Tinnitus maskers )similar to hearing aids, these devices produce a continuous, low-level white noise that suppresses tinnitus symptoms.

Try sleeping with your head propped up in an elevated position which lessens head congestion and noises may become less noticeable.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
