      Question is in the title, how exactly can you tell whether you have pulsatile tinnitus or just regular tinnitus?

      Tinnitus is a sound that is experienced either in the head or the ears but often in both
      which is not coming from an external sound source. There are two types of tinnitus. The
      most common is Subjective. The person affected can only hear this. The other is called
      Objective. A doctor can hear this when examining a patient, by placing a stethoscope on
      the neck, close to the ear. If a rhythmic heart beat can be heard through the blood vessels
      of the neck, it is known as objective pulsatile tinnitus.

      I visited 3 ENTs , and none of them used stethoscope to check whether it's Objective or Subjective.
