I lay down tonight and all of a sudden I heard this sound and thought Crap a bug is in my ear. I actually jumped in the pool and held my ear underwater because I had not been in or near water for over 24 hours. I knew the sound in my ear could not be water it HAD to be a bug but then I research and find this site and think, no make that pray it is not a bug and maybe something worse.... Okay I really hate bugs. So from what I am gathering if this is like what most have posted then I had better get used to this feeling and sound...... I am glad to know I am not alone but can I just say GREAAAAAAAAAAAAT

and god will give you strenght for all that chalenge.
I visited the ENT the other day about a different matter and mentioned the ocean sound in my ear and he told me what it's called. I honestly can't remember. He advised me to go see my chiropractor because my aligment was off. Sure enough this worked sound is gone.
Hi everyone just wanted to tell you that i know the cause.
i had an inner ear infection i think somehow from water an dthey made me take these ear drops, and since then my right ear has this problem. there is nothing wrong with the brain or anything..its just a nuisance..i suppose it will go away eventually?
i have this swooshing noise for about 2 going on 3 years now...everyday...mostly when i wake in the morning and if i move my head certain ways...mostly when its quiet...i thought i had something stuck in there or like something crawled in my ear possibly when i was sleeping...but i love cleaning my ears with
q-tips...i do this like 3 times a day...i go pretty deep...one day i went so deep i hurt myself and that swooshing noise started...also my balance is totally off...i havent been to the docs but plan too soon...a friend told me its a big build up of wax...im hoping so...
I have that swooshing in my head now...however, my doctor prescribed EstroGel (it's a gel that you just put on your skin to be absorbed into your system) and it seems to be working. RUN, don't walk, to your nearest doc for this prescription! It's all natural, but as with most things, you shouldn't use if PG or could become PG.
I have had the same whooshing sound in my ear for about 2 years or so. I agree that it sounds like holding a shell to your ear or the sound an ultrasound makes. No diagnosis here either from my PCP or my ENT. My right ear feels full, no pain and the annoying sound especially at night watching TV. If I tip my head down towards my right shoulder, it will stop for a brief period of time. I wish I could find what is causing this !
i also have this swooshing sound on my right ear. i have this for almost 2 weeks already. it started after vacation, we went to the beach and swim for like half a day (although i really dont go to deeper part of it ^_^). water keepsn entering my ear, but it will just come out right away, 1st it was just like i can hear my own voice louder and pain occur sometimes, then recently i have this air like sound in my ear specially when i exhale and closes my mouth. so i tried covering my right ear and exhale w/ mouth close, its normal. and so i tried covering the left ear and exhales w/ mouth closed and guess what? i can hear the air that comes... that is unusual right? since before its not like this.. i am so scared that i might loss my hearing pls guys help if anyone overcomes this.
thank you so much for the time in reading
What a relief! I thought I was insane! This whooshing sound started in April and I went to the Dr thinking it was fluid. She prescribed me antibitics and said if it didn't work to go to an ear dr. Well I did and she gave me a stronger antibiotic. That didn't work so I went to ANOTHER ent and he said that what I'm hearing is the blood being pumped through my artery in my head and there's nothing they can do for it. Which doesn't make sense to me because why after 24yrs would I just all of sudden hear this. I'm going insane!!!!!! It makes me dizzy and sick to my stomach and I feel deaf all the time. It feels like my head is under water and people are trying to talk to me. Please someone find answers before I take a power drill to my ears!
I was feeling all alone today until I found all of you. I have had this noise for 8-10 years. It started when I became severely anemic, I saw a hematologist, he did no test when I told him about the (sound in my ear)but laughingly said oh it could be a blood clot that is stuck and if it hasn't killed you yet it probably won't. I sorta went crazy with doctors after that and no one could find nothing and so I live with it, and some times it is so loud it drives me crazy. Like many of you I can put pressure on my neck and it will go away and if I turn my head just right it will go away. I do find myself laughing at myself some times when I look only to the left and hold my hand on my neck what a site it must be.
I am in the same basket,I did almost every test to rectify the issue in my left year. Met ENT, Neuroscientist to see all sort of cases and no results. I think I have to live with this, the sound some time goes up and some time down. Some time feeling drowsy and less focus. Terribly impacted on my academic life...ENT told me that it Menier's syndrome http://www.earsurgery.org/site/pages/condi
hooowwww annoying.. same problem as all of ya.. left ear makin that stupid heart beat noise. it used to be just occasionally, and just recently has been all the time. terrible thing to have to deal with, but i guess it could be a whole lot worse. anyways just wanted every1 to know i feel your pain. Was hoping for more answers, but i guess thats life huh?
Hi everyone. I, too, have this swooshing sound in my right ear. I can hear my pulse with every swoosh and it does sound a little like listening to the ocean in a sea shell. Mine started about six months ago and I believe it was a direct result of some type of complication I had after a minor surgical procedure.
While I was in the recovery room after surgery just waking up, I remember feeling very cold and suddenly I got a huge headache -- like my head was going to explode. I remember looking at the blood pressure monitor and seeing that my blood pressure was half of what it should have been 60 over 40. The nurses came rushing in & gave me something in my IV and within a min or so, my headache subsided and my blood pressure returned to normal. I left the hospital and exactly one week later, I was lying in my bed trying to sleep and started hearing my pulse in my right ear.
It comes and goes and like others whenever I'm in a roomful of people or somewhere where it's loud, the external noise drowns out the swooshing sound. I hear it mostly in the morning whenever I get out of bed. Sometimes it lasts all day long and it's driving me crazy. I also hear it more clearly whenever I'm lying in bed at night trying to sleep.
I don't have allergies, TMJ, water in my ear, blood pressure problems. In fact I have low blood pressure all of my life -- usually 90/60.
I have an appt with an ear specialist in a few days and I will let you know what I find out.
I can't live with this forever. It is soo annoying!! I can relate to all of you and I hope we can find something that works to get rid of this sound!!!
If mine is a direct result of post-surgery going wrong, I will be seeking an attorney!
Hi all i just got this feeling in my right ear today, feels like i have a seashell to my ear, no pain, just obnoxious! I started doing research and found this forum. I have started with eardrops a medication called Ciprodex, and will see what happens over the next couple days and will let ya'll know. Some sort of positive is a co worker said this happened to her last week and it went away after a few days.
Omg. I can relate. I guess I first realized the swooshing sound 2 years ago. It has recently gotten more frequent within the past few months. It would usually start after I got in from work and got ready to get in bed. Now it's off and on all the time. The sound reminds me of a doppler of an artery or like the ultrasound of a babysat heartbeat. I'm going to schedule an appt and hope they can find the cause. I do think the sound is that of an artery because if I slow my breathing and calm down the rate of the swooshing slows down. Thanks for reading Please post any updates. MJ
I have been reading all the posts and have lots of the same symptoms - pulsating whooshing in right ear when I bend over, feeling of fullness and pulling rather than pain in the ear - but also have something really weird that I find almost impossible to explain... I get the whooshing mainly when I hear a noise, the louder the noise, the more intense the whoosh. When I shout at my kids, my own voice causes a whoosh too. If i rub my ear, I get a whoosh. I've had it for about 6 months and it's slowly getting worse though I am better at coping with it now than when it first started. Def worse when I'm tired or ill. Been to docs few months ago and was supposed to go back but everyone thinks it's stress. I think there is something physiologically wrong though so I will go back.
Any ideas very welcome. mumof6
I had this wooshing sound (like holding a shell up to your ear) for weeks. One day I went to Chiropractor for back problems. During the visit he adjusted my back and my neck. Afterwards, I notice the sound went away. I asked him about it and the Chiropractor mentioned that sometimes adjusting the atlas of the neck can relieve pressure which in turn can let fluid drain or release nerve pressure. My Chiropractor did mention this was something doctors have really figured out so it could just be coincidence.
So, a Chiropractor visit (for a neck adjustment) might help--it definitely worked for me.
i have had this annoying problem with my ears(yes, both of them) for a good year and a half now. i've tried a lot of things, and the doctor is definately no help at all. i've been to the doctors over 5 times for this, and he just keeps giving me anti biotics. i cant aford to keep going back. i seem to find out more information about what it could be online, than going to my own doctor! how messed up is that?
if anyone knows how to really get rid of this, i'd love to know! its been driving me insane and sometimes i just want to cry. i can't seem to get through 1 day without some annoying noise in my ears, which also includes getting light headed, and almost a drunk feeling for a couple seconds, and a lot of pressure in my head. its not a headache, just a lot of pressure.
help me! i'd like to be sane again!
hey! i have the same thing, but it feels like im breathing through my ears, it's really loud and it's driving me nutts! i've had it about 6 months now, and it's really getting in the way of my schoolwork. i've gone to the family doctor and he gave me some scary cold medicine(wich did not help at all) but it seems to dissapear when my head is upsidedown but it comes back when i swallow. it's worse in the morning, but usually goes away during the day. help?
Hi I had a whossing sound in my right ear especially when I was lying down, it sounded like the sea. When I turned to sleep on my left side it would speed up then slow down, I thought it was co ordinating with the blood going through my veins.. But from what I am reading it sounds like it is to do with tinnitus, I was starting to get real concerned that it would be something major. Thankfully mine has stopped for now.
