@FutureMrs86:  Just take it one day at a time.  Worrying isn’t going to change the outcome.  But I understand completely.  Hang in there, I’ll say a prayer for you and your health!!

@FutureMrs86:  I haven’t, although sometime’s my ear will do that, but it is very rare and only does it like 5 times then goes away. I find it happens only when I have a headache.

I have, however, had an MRI, and that really isn’t scary. Just stay calm, and try not to assume the worst. I know it is so hard, but it could be nothing. And if it is something at least you get it taken care of then going on through life letting it get worse to the point where you can’t hear or something worse.

I wish you the best of luck. My thoughts and prayers are with you, girl!

@FutureMrs86:  My only advice would be to stop Googling what it could be. Only your doctor can tell you, and your doctor will also advise how to treat it. Worrying for nothing just borrows trouble and stress has a detrimental impact on health. I totally understand that is easier said than done, but it will really do more harm than good. The best thing you can do is distract yourself and wait for the results. You may be worrying needlessly – I bet half the things women worry about don’t even end up happening!

@FutureMrs86:  This could actually be a raging ear infection that got all out of hand…I had the same thing happen to me when I was in college….I KNEW there was a hole in my eardrum, I could hear it and feel it, but every time I went to the doctor, he was like..I don’t see anything…and left it at that….Finally when I started passing out and running a 104 fever off and on I went to a specialist and he found the hole, and a horrible infection that was pretty much having Mardi Gras through my entire canal…they did and MRI to make sure the infection hadn’t spread or anything and sucked all the crap out with a Mr. Thirsty and I lived on anti-biotics for like…three months….you’re fine…it’s probably something random and weird

Sending some major hugs your way!!! I don’t have any recommendations or advice- just know that they are doing everything possible to figure out what’s going on, and that it most likely will be something much less scary than what you’re expecting!

As far as the MRI goes, the worst thing about it is that you are stuck there, stationary, with your (anxious) thoughts. But, they can (and should) prescribe you something for anxiety, if this might be an issue for you. It is loud, but it doesn’t hurt, and they should make you pretty comfortable ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Thinking of you and sending all of my positive energies ๐Ÿ™‚ Please keep us updated!

Have they done a hearing test which should show if you have Meniere’s disease?  I had the same symptoms you describe and it was Meniere’s – they also put me through the terror of a CT scan and thinking it was a brain tumor.

Do you have allergies at all? I had the same thing for years as a child whenever I was having an allergic reaction to dust or pollen. I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about.

@FutureMrs86:  You’re doing everything you can do. I know it’s hard and scary, but it’s a good thing that things are coming back clear and normal. I doubt you have a tumor, you’d have more symptoms (I would think) than just a persistant heartbeat in your ear. (I am not a medical professional at all).

Having been where you are, I know it’s scary and all I can tell you is try to relax. Stress isn’t going to help the situation. The more tests that come back clear, the better. That’s more things they rule out. When they finally told me what was going on, it was a relief, but it also brought on more questions. One step at a time, you’ll get through this. 

Also, do stop googling as a PP said. That will make you think the absolute worst! ๐Ÿ™‚
