What is causing a sporadic thumping sound in my left ear?

Hi @gerardcame, Welcome to Connect, an online community where you can share your experiences and find support from other patients. I moved this discussion to the Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat group to connect you with other members.

I wonder if you might have pulsatile tinnitus. Here some information about tinnitus and pulsatile tinnitus.

Have you been to see your doctor about the thumping? When does it happen?

It most happens if I give even a little burp but can come on anytime.

Hello @loisde! Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! Thank you for commenting on this thread.

Do you also experience thumping sounds in your ear?

Yes and my Dr. has put me on antibiotics so will see what happens. Have had periodic thumping for the last couple months.

@cinnamon, are you still experiencing thumping in your ear? Have you been seen by a medical professional for a proper diagnosis ?

@loisde, have the antibiotics helped?

please let us know how you are both doing.

Antibiotics have helped but still get it the odd time. I have never had a problem with the feeling that I want to burp – not much but a little burp and that is when I get a small thump in my ear. Don’t know what is causing that bit of gas so will ask when I see the Doctor.
