Hi, I am a recent mechanical valve recipient and was reading a lady's heart valve journal on http://www.heart-valve-surgery.com/journals/ and she will be having her mitral valve repaired or replaced this week. One thing she mentioned was hearing her heartbeat in her ear. When I read this I remembered that 3 years ago right after I moved from San Jose to Portland, OR I could hear my heartbeat in my ear for 11 weeks. What cured it was auricular therapy which is needle less acupuncture. I now wonder if it was somehow related to my bad mitral valve. I only found out last December I had a murmur, so perhaps this 'heartbeat in my ear' was a first sign of my condition.
Has anyone else experienced this?
