where do you feel this pulsating feeling? in your head?

sometimes when you sleep on one ear, you can close off hearing by air conduction

and so that ear can hear by bone conduction and you can hear your own carotid artery pulse which is very close to your inner ear

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
