rapid thumping sound in left ear
For the past 24 hours, I've been having the spastic thumbing in my ear. It doesn't match my heart beat either. It's very random, but it seems to happen every 3-6 seconds and lasts about 5-10 seconds. What could this be?

Did you get a diagnosis / solve this? I have the same thing only when in bed. Like the percussion section in my ear — thumps 7 – 12 times in a row and then pauses for about 30 sec. only to resume. No change in head or body position – even trying to sleep sitting up — will stop it. So no sleep. Bad. Going to make ENT appt tmw.
Did you ever find out what it was? I started getting this about 2 months ago. I also have ringing in the ears, have had it for about 3 years.
