Thumping/drumming in one ear

I have been noticing a weird thumping/pulsating sound in my right ear. If cover the ear, it stops.
Also found that when I watch tv on my cell phone (LG Stylo 2), that is when the thumping occurs (Spectrum TV app). Doesn't happen with any of my other devices, nor with PlutoTV, TubiTV, YouTube, or Netflix.
But if I turned the program off, the thumping stops. I put an emf counter by my phone and it is emiting up to 24.4 while the other devices are emitting 15 on the high end.
So I am assuming WIFI plus using the video somehow is creating a sound wave that I have described.
I just wonder, why only the right ear?? Why not both ears??

Hello @jbondzich, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.
It's certainly frustrating to not know what's happening to yourself. While searching for the forum, I've found a discussion about pulsatile tinnitus that has similar symptoms of thumping/pulsating sounds like you described.
