  • I had a tympanoplasty surgery with a bone implant last week and with a couple days am experiencing debilitating pulsatile tinnitus. I have my follow up today. Wish me luck please!

  • WOW! Thank you so much for posing this..just visited an ENT which they told me just like you.. nothing is wrong. The whooshing is getting so loud its driving me crazy.

  • I'm so happy for you that you found a solution. It gives me hope! I have had 3 CT scans, 2 MRIs, 2 ultrasounds of my neck and lots of bloodwork. Still no answers!

  • I've been hearing my heartbeat on my right ear for the past 2 months. This happens when I exercise or when I'm doing any physical activity which involves me to move quick. Also, I can hear my heartbeat when I stand up from a seated position. The heartbeat lasts for about 8-10 seconds before it fades away.
    The heartbeat in my right ear is very strong especially when I'm doing intense physical exercise and it goes away once I stop exercising.
    Also, as mentioned previously, I can hear my heartbeat in my right ear when I stand up from a seated position. The heartbeat here isn't as strong as the one triggered by exercise and it lasts for 8-10 seconds.

    During other times, I never hear it. I don't have a difficult sleeping unlike most others as I don't really hear anything. But it still bothers me a lot especially during intense physical exercise as it serves as a distraction when I'm working out. Post workout, I end up overthinking about it and get stressed out.

    I just want to know if this is anything serious. I'm not really sure if it is caused because of exercise or not. I have been consistently working out for a year but I've only started to experience this 2 months ago.

  • Interesting about the IIH. I’m mainly worried about that tbh. The pulsatile tinnitus comes and goes every few days luckily but… the IIH is what worries me

  • I have tinnitus in my right year for four years now , recently I put on weight and my blood pressure increased and I started medication, I ended up with pulsatile tinnitus, I reduced my body weight by 5kgs and my pulsatile tinnitus vanished, along with weight reduction I have started using medication for anxiety, that helped me a lot in ignoring tinnitus and my pulsatile tinnitus cured completely

  • I always had that. When I was little it sounded like someone digging with a shovel. I always imagined a tiny man in my ear digging a hole.
