Ear problem

I can feel a pulsating feeling in my ear from a month ago. It's like a sound of heartbeat. It started suddenly one day & sometimes it goes away & again comes back. I don't have any other problems with my ear & my hearing is also fine.

That could be a serious problem. It is known as Pulsatile Tinnitus and the sound is that of the blood pulsing through the Jugular Bulb, in the neck just below the Ear..
