Hello doctor,

I hear my pulse and heartbeat-like sound in my right ear if I bend over, especially after exercise or eating food. Is it normal? Can it be due to blood pressure or is it due to any blockage in my blood vessel near my ear?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The symptoms you feel are called as heart palpitations. It may be due to thyroid disease, anxiety, heart disease, blood pressure or many other reasons.

You need to consult your cardiologist for proper evaluation of the cause and to treat that accordingly. Diagnosis is the first step and that need proper and thorough diagnostics.

Usually taking Atenolol 50 mg once daily may suffice the need to relieve the symptoms. As this is a prescription medicine, your cardiologist can recommend it and prescribe you after an in-person visit.
