Pulsatile tinnitus

Posted by beatricefay @beatricefay, Jun 2, 2018

Started getting heart beat sounds in right ear only. Got an MRA to check the arteries (no results yet). Strangely the sounds start in the evening and continue when I go to bed. I have no idea why it's quiet during the day. Has anyone else had this experience. If my arteries are okay in my brain then I have to look for other causes. Any ideas. I checked medication side effects but that doesn't seem to be the cause. One night I exercised in the evening and I had no sounds, but that didn't work yesterday. I'm perplexed.

Mine is gone. Go see a vascular surgeon. You may have an AV DURAL FISTULA. It can be repaired!!

I know this is an old post but came across it and thought I would tell you what I know. I have suffered from vertigo for thirty years, saw lots of doctors and took various medications. Finally I saw a neurologist in the Texas Medical Center (Houston) and he was awesome. He taught me to use exercises to help resolve the vertigo. There are many techniques and you can google vertigo exercises (Please check with your ENT/Neuro/Primary Care first). My neurologist also performed a "vertigo" test on me where the result was jerky eye movements, a result that helps to confirm vertigo. He had me do the Epley maneuver and within a week or two my issues resolved. I do this now when I feel a flare coming on. Hope this helps!
