Thumping/drumming in one ear
Hi @kerryf88 and welcome to Connect. That must be frustrating having this thumping in your ear.
i wanted to introduce you to fellow Connect members @kittyrushing @goodoldboy68 and @miscy13 as they have all mentioned ear thumping in the past and may be able to offer you support.
Back to you @kerryf88 when you cover your ear with a finger does that get rid of the thumps or do they go away on their own?

It will go away when I cover my ear, and will also go away itself after a few thumps
I have thumping in 1 eardrum due to noises. Just normal talk. I have to cover my ear and it helps. It even thumps when i move my mouth. Its been happening for over a month. I went to the ENT but nothing. Its getting maddening. The only thing that helps is putting a finger in my ear
@ethanmcconkey yes the sound goes away when I plug my right ear.
