      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Procedures to address eustachian tube dysfunction
      Hello all. I have had pulsatile tinnitus for nearly 6 weeks. It's a by-product of a myringotomy and ear tubes to address eustachian tube dysfunction. It impacts my right ear only, and is worse at night, when it's quiet. I get through okay during the day, but it's tough to rest at night. I've had a CT, so I know there is no mass. Prednisone helps, but its side effects are bad. Steroid drops have not helped.

      I'm just learning about what's known and not known about this type of tinnitus. I've also read a great deal about tinnitus in general, and I really had no idea about the number of folks impacted with tinnitus or the tremendous symptoms that some deal with. I think mine is mild in comparison and may go away when the tubes come out, or not.
