rapid thumping sound in left ear

Thank you for your thoughts and sympathy. "Affliction" sounds just about right. I liken this to having one's head pressed up against the big drum in a marching band while the drummer pounds away. OK, maybe a tad overstated — but not in terms of effect on being able to sleep or get used to it. I had jack-hammering going on next door to my house years ago to remove a big river of rock and it was just about as pleasant. And at least it stopped before bedtime.

You do have my sympathy. Have you Googled Whooshers.com? You may get information there. Maybe if we all band together, we can find a cure or at least a doctor who won’t say, “Get used to it.”

Hi, not sure how much of this thread you have read…but it seems
Like there is always a Cause. I’ve had pulsatile tinnitus for like 3 years. I was diagnosed with a Dural arteriovenous fistula. Despite embolization, it came back. And now I have to get checked every 6 months by cerebral Angiogram. In fact, I go next week. I know how this sucks, mine is always worse when I lay down for bed. I went to an ENT first and he got the ball rolling, but I ended up at a neurosurgeon’s office who finally made the diagnosis. Good luck!
