      I've just recently noticed i have pulsatile tinnitus.

      I often have a feeling of fullness in that ear (tympo-thingy and hearing has come back clear) so am wondering if the pulsatile tinnitus can make your ear feel a bit blocked (no decrease in hearing btw)

      Hi, @danni1979,

      Yes, pulsatile tinnitus can definitely cause that feeling of fullness in your ear. I've had PT for nearly six years now, and I had that fullness feeling for quite awhile. The good news is that, for me at least, the fullness finally went away.

      I had dizziness/vertigo, too, right at first, but it is also gone. I do still have a high-pitched hissing sound in the affected ear (right ear only), and I still have the pulsating. But the other symptoms have subsided.

      I'm hoping for you that yours will, too.

      Best wishes,
