    Pulsatile Tinnitus

    So bit of background:

    Had normal tinnitus for years. My own fault. Too much exposure to loud music. High volume on earphones and standing next to speakers at raves so I think that explains that.

    I've also had sinus issues - stuffy/blocked especially on the left side.

    However since December I've been suffering with what I THINK is pulsatile tinnitus.

    I'm sure it went away for a bit then came back.

    It's not constant. It mainly happens when I run up the stairs but not always. Sometimes also when I go from sitting to standing but again there is no regular pattern.

    What i also notice when I'm walking is like a clicking sound in the same ear. Again this is not constant or consistent.

    Also, sometimes when I talk my inner ear kinda vibrates or My voice echoes through my head.

    I guess what I'm trying to figure out is if this is sinus ralated or something more serious.

    I keep reading about tumours and aneurysms. I have mentioned it to a Dr and all she did was look in my ear, say she couldn't see anything and sent me on my way.

    Panicking that I'm a ticking time bomb and something awful will happen out of nowhere.

    Re: Pulsatile Tinnitus

    I think you are googling too much. I have tinnitus, particularly in one ear. I don’t worry about it. It is what it is. I have a feeling mine was caused by playing rock music too load on ear phones.
    Have something similar to that clicking sound…you know that tapping sound when you are on an iPad or phone. I have periods when I can hear that a lot.
    Do you think you may have a wax build up that’s making things worse?
    I just accept that sometimes my tinnitus does odd stuff. The more you worry and fret, the louder and more disturbing it will become.

    I don't worry about the normal high pitched sounds at all. It's the heart beat sounds that I worry about. I know I shouldn't Google but no search turns up anything good 🙈 I thought if it was wax, the Dr would have seen when she looked. But I do wonder if it could be that

    I have pulsatile tinnitus. I've been tested and scanned and all they could find is a 'congenital birth defect' in my inner ear which could account for the PT. I also have normal tinnitus and loss of hearing all in the same ear. Plus, sinus issues which affect that side of my face. I think it's all connected..

    Glad to hear yours was nothing sinister. It does seem coincidental that I suffer with my sinuses that side too. But I also get the odd head pain that side then I start to worry its something awful.

    It isn't constant by any means which in a way does reassure me. Just which GPs would take these things more seriously

    Everything's on my left side..

    Currently battling jaw pain. I've had it for two weeks - started when I woke up chomping on my tongue. I've had to root my mouth guard out and wear the bloody awful thing..

    Everything is connected, this is why I get ear pain, jaw pain and head aches on the same side. I also get pain where it comes across my cheek. (I've got it all going on lol)

    Mine is the left too! I also get awful head pains, don't call them aches cos they don't always last that long. But today I won't up and the top of my head was burning!! No idea if it's related or not but always makes me think the worst. Just haven't been able to shift this groggy head feeling for the last 2 days

    Had covid last week which made the Pulsatile tinnitus so much worse! Still there now albeit not as bad but I've developed a twitch in my lower lip! I'm convinced this a tumour or undetected aneurysm causing my symptoms
