I’ve had tinnitus in my left ear since about 2008. In the last two months I’ve had this condition which means I constantly hear my heart beat in this ear, nothing in my right ear.

I’ve looked it up on Google but does anyone know if I should report it to my doctor? TIA.

Thanks for that jno. I do remember having an MRI scan when I first got it which didn’t throw anything up then.
From what you have said, it is no big deai.
It is quite common for patients particularly older patients, to hear blood surging through a blood vessel in the inner ear.
There are rare conditions that can cause these symptoms, ut very rare and in your case you have had an MRI scan.
Nothing much can be done other than learning to live with it.
No need to see your GP.

Annoying. ^^^^
Chrissa...I have it too. It followed "ordinary" tinnitus associated with many years of Meniere's..very deaf in my right ear apart from the "whooshing" every second...it's very useful for measuring your pulse without touching a pulse-point!

Yes, gingebee. I haven’t got Menieres but it’s handy when you do some exercise and you know your heartbeat is showing you have tried some extra exercise.

What I don’t like is waking up in the morning with this. :))
It might be a bit of earwax on the drum.
