My MIL hears thumping in her ears. It began suddenly a few weeks ago. She can’t attribute it to anything, but she only notices it when it’s very quiet. The way she described it, it sounded like she was hearing her heartbeat in her ears, but she said it’s not a consistent rhythm. She went to a general practitioner, who couldn’t diagnose her. She has been referred to an ear/nose/throat specialist, but won’t get to see him for another two weeks. Any ideas as to what is going on? She doesn’t feel any pain, no sinus issues, no headaches.
Thank you for your help!
