Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

are you still having this pulsing in your right ear now?

this pulsing could be due to an inner ear infection or from sinus congestion or fluid in the inner ear.

still have pulsing i drove 1100 miles to my home in sw fl wed worked on my air cond in my home yesterday extremely hot while working, then got ac working let it run all night and i got cold while sleeping. I do have heart disease hence plavix and aspirin since stent with lisinopril and metrotopol since stent installed. I can go to clinic tomorrow and get ekg or whatever the pulsing in my ear is new to me in my 70 yrs???
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

I see.

this hot and cold temperature increases chances of having an inner ear infection which can cause fluid in the inner ear and pulsing in the ear

you may need a course of antibiotics and steroid pills to decrease inflammation in your inner ear which can help your symptoms.
